Run a bike collection drive for the Boys & Girls Club Bike Exchange. Encourage people to donate bikes no longer in use. The Bike Exchange volunteers will recondition or refurbish and sell them. All the proceeds benefit the club. Help support recycling and the environmental while supporting your local BGC Club!  To inquire about scheduling a bike drive with pick up, email info@BikeExchangeNJ.org


Book Drive

Organize a children's book drive. Collect gently used or new books and encourage others in your community to do so too. All books will be distributed to youth in our after school programs. To inquire about setting up a book drive, email zyazid@bgcmercer.org


School Supply/Backpack Drive

Our kids need supplies to go back to learning, and we welcome donations year-round to support our students at school and at the Club after school. The best time to donate would be from June through August/September. A back-to-school supply drive helps our kids come prepared to learn and lessens the financial burden on families.

You can provide us with just supplies, backpacks, or stuff the backpacks with supplies for specific grade levels. The flyer (click here) describes the types of supplies needed for various grade levels. To inquire about setting up a School Supply drive, email danderson@bgcmercer.org
