It’s back to school season, and Jennifer Aydin is doing her part to help children get the supplies they need to have a great year. The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member is collecting supply donations for the Boys and Girls Club of Paterson and Passaic, and it looks like her efforts have already been quite successful!
“Hey guys! If you haven’t heard already, I am collecting school supply donations for the Stuff the Bus fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club of Paterson and Passaic. Over the next week, I am going to be donating and collecting donations for the kids,” Jennifer explained in a September 12 Instagram post, noting that those who are local to New Jersey can drop off supplies at Everything Bagel in Paramus or Julio Angel Hair Salon in Verona. For those who would like to help but are unable to make it to one of the locations, there is a GoFundMe page accepting monetary donations.
In another post, Jennifer said that fellow New Jerseyans DJ Envy and Cesar Piña donated 250 profiled backpacks for the children.
“Thank you, thank you, thank you to @flipping_nj @djenvy @jennitips for donating almost 300 backpacks filled with school supplies to the Boys and Girls Club of Paterson and Passaic,” Jennifer wrote. “We had a successful day and when I’m in a good mood—I get jiggy with it!”
Despite all of the markers, folders, and backpacks they’ve received so far, Jennifer noted that they’ve still got some work to do before they hit their goal.
“We need to pay it forward,” she said. “We need to get these kids 750 backpacks.” “
