This is how the Kids In Need Foundation operates: through a national network of Resource Centers, teachers can get free supplies for their students who are in need. We do not donate supplies directly to other organizations or families. The supplies must be acquired through teachers who have shopping privileges at the Resource Centers. All supplies donated to us by manufacturers and retailers go immediately to the Resource Centers. We do not have a warehouse from which we can draw supplies, so we do not donate supplies directly to other organizations, schools, families, or individuals.

The Gala is attended by representatives from major retailers and manufacturers that believe in our mission to provide free school supplies to students most in need. The event provides opportunities to network with others within and outside the school supplies and office products industry while boosting support for a very worthy cause.

All proceeds from the Gala help us serve 3.6 million children and more than 120,000 teachers annually who are provided with school supplies from the Kids In Need National Network of Resource Centers, 32 stores across the country where teachers obtain free school supplies for boys and girls who would otherwise go without. Kids In Need distributed more than $550 million worth of school supplies since its founding.

Thank You!
