Jersey Proud: Hudson County teacher holds annual backpack drives for students
A North Bergen teacher has been holding backpack drives every year to help students in need across New Jersey.
Shazia Majeed was working as a substitute teacher in West New York when she saw that kids were coming to class ill-prepared.
She created a fix by holding book bag drives every year since 2017.
This year, Majeed collected backpacks for students in West New York, Guttenberg and North Bergen.
In the last five years, she's donated over 2,500 backpacks to kids in Hudson County.
