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.


Our Partners

We work with many manufacturers, retailers, and affiliates that help us distribute much-needed supplies to kids and teachers. These businesses are our greatest partners in fulfilling the Kids In Need mission. Our partners and affiliates have helped us to deliver school supplies to more than 10 million children since 1995.
