What is the EBEA Bear Necessities Clothing Den?
The Den is a place where East Brunswick Public School district students, with an adult family member, can shop for the necessary articles of clothing that they are in need of. Guests who are invited will be registered to shop in our Den at no cost. You must receive a bright green invitation to attend.
When will the Den be open to our Registered Guests?
The Den will be open to registered guests on the 2nd Saturday 9:00am-11:00am, and the 4th Thursday 4:00pm-6:00pm of each month (September - June). Select summer hours will be available as well. We will be closed on holidays and during Fall, Spring and Winter Recesses as per the East Brunswick School district calendar.
