Families work hard to be able to send their children back to school ready to learn. Many times sending children back to school taps family budgets and they are unable to provide additional classroom supplies. The schools we work with have tremendous need for these types of supply kits and would go a long way in supporting student success!
You can help by donating the following items:
- College and Wide Ruled Paper
- Ream of Copy Paper
- Pencils - # 2
- Hand Sanitizer
- Disinfecting Wipes
- Dry Erase Markers (for teachers)
- Index Cards - ruled and unruled
- Pocket Folders
- Spiral Bound Notebooks
Public school teachers spend an average of $500 out of pocket on their students. According to a 2014 study by the National School Supply and Equipment Association (NSSEA), 92 percent of teachers spend their own money on classroom supplies, while 85 percent buy instructional materials for their students. We know teachers are already going the extra mile and willingly pay out of pocket for classroom materials and supplies.
Let’s give them a hand!
Thank you for your support
