EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Back-to-school time also means an added expense that many families cannot afford. To assist Middlesex County residents with the purchase of the often costly school supplies, the Immaculate Conception School is sponsoring a School Supply Drive at the Brunswick Square Mall.

All of the donations collected at the drive, which will run through the month of August, will be donated to children in need through the Mobile Family Success Center of Middlesex County and will benefit a Middlesex County school district.

Suggested donations include:
