Serving Children from the Monmouth County community on the generously donated campuses of The Rumson Country Day School and Christian Brothers Academy.

Backpack and School Supplies Drive 2024

Every year we send each of our students back to school with a new backpack full of school supplies (valued at approximately $100 per student) to give them all the tools they will need for a successful academic year.
How the community can help: Horizons is accepting donations of new backpacks and school supplies for students in Kindergarten through High School. To help underwrite the Back to School Ready for Success Initiative, please click here.

In partnership with our friends at the Junior League of Monmouth County (JLMC) and our host schools, The Rumson Country Day School (RCDS) and Christian Brothers Academy (CBA), Horizons will be collecting new backpacks and school supplies now through August 31, 2024. Items can be dropped off at the following locations:
