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.
