JR-Glass-J R Glass Backpacks for Fitchburg-Backpacks

We’re at it again this year putting together 80 backpacks to help homeless children in Fitchburg be prepared for school.  J R Glass employees, Melissa Zirkle and Desiree Torres, have gathered school supply lists, priced out the supplies and found the inventory at our local stores. We have a team in our shop assembling backpacks this week.


We had a lot of people ask last year, how  could they  help? If you are interested, we’re collecting $25.00 gift cards to Walmart, or any local store, where these kids can purchase socks and underwear. The cards will be given to the Title I coordinator for the city to distribute to these children.


If you have the time to mail a gift card, or drop one off, that would be awesome. We’re at 860 Water Street, Fitchburg, MA  01420. Thank you!
