The North Bergen Federation of Teachers will be holding a Dress Down Day on Friday, January 26, 2018 for Backpacks For Life. Their mission is to provide veterans with things they cannot provide for themselves. Reintegrating into society has many obstacles and sometimes isn’t always easy for veterans. We are hoping to be the support system that homeless & low income veterans may not have and help them in getting back on their feet; whether that means finding a job, finding housing or giving them a backpack full of daily essentials to help them survive. Homeless veterans make up a large portion of society and it is only right to help serve those who have protected our country.
