BH Sports Training/BrawlHouse, located in Mountainside, NJ, has announced that it has launched a back to school supply drive for the children of Youth Consultation Service (YCS).  BrawlHouse operates with a social mission and a commitment to give back to the community and very much enjoys the work that it does on behalf of YCS.  Hall of Fame boxer and former number one heavyweight contender Gerry Cooney, who runs BrawlHouse’s boxing club, works closely with the children from YCS and uses boxing as a method to impart the life lesson that to succeed in life, you need to work hard and commit to yourself if you are going to reach your goals regardless of the obstacles that you may face.

With the school year right around the corner, BrawlHouse is excited to launch this school supply drive.  The children of YCS need the following items, which can be dropped off at BrawlHouse, which is located at 1115 Globe Avenue, Unit B, Mountainside, NJ 07092:

·         1, 3 and 5 subject note books (no spirals)

·         Composition books
