Backpack & School Supply Drive

As the new school year approaches, the Township of Union has once again partnered with MLB Residential Lending, LLC to help bridge the gap between what families can afford and what students need for their school year. We have placed four collection bins around town and are asking for school supply donations for the members of our community that need them most.

Collections Bin locations are at:

  • Town Hall:  1976 Morris Ave
  • Fire Headquarters: 1 Bond Drive
  • MLB Residential Lending, LLC:  1095 Morris Ave, Suite 104
  • MLB Residential Lending, LLC:  51 Commerce St. Springfield, NJ
