Operation Backpack

The Princeton Farmers’ Market has announced the success of Sinjin’s lemonade stand to benefit Christine’s Hope for Kids. Every summer, Sinjin Scozzaro, front left, travels from Texas to Princeton to visit his grandmother. Three years ago, he came across a poster for Christine’s Hope For Kids at the Princeton Farmers’ Market. He asked about Operation Backpack, learning its goal of supplying backpacks and school supplies to children in need. Since then he has operated a lemonade stand for a single day of each summer market season to benefit this mission, this year raising $642. This was matched by Christine’s Hope and JM Group bringing the total to $1,926, and later matched by the Scozzaro family bringing the total to $2,500. The JM Group, consisting of the Princeton Farmers’ Market, Blue Point Grill, Witherspoon Grill, and Nassau Street Seafood & Produce Co., thanks everyone who’s continued to support this worthy organization.
