Photo: Student raises $2,500 for Operation Backpack at Princeton Farmers’ Market

Every summer, Sinjin Scozzaro travels from Texas to Princeton to visit his grandmother. Three years ago while visiting, he saw a poster for  Christine’s Hope For Kids at the Princeton Farmers’ Market. He asked about Operation Backpack and its goal of supplying backpacks and school supplies to children in need. Since then he has operated a lemonade stand at the market one day each summer to raise money for Operation Backpack. This summer he raised $642. With matches from Christine’s Hope, the JM Group, and the Scozzaro family, Sinhin raised a total of $2,500 this year.
