Voices from the Classroom

Chapter 2: Pride of Ownership

“A pencil case, a back pack, a box of crayons…it gives a child something of their very own, that they do not have to share with anyone. There are no words that can describe how deep that level of giving is. Kids In Need may not directly see the impact in the classroom…but I can tell you from the front-lines Kids In Need is changing the world, one child at a time.”

When families struggle financially, school supplies just can't be a priority. In 2017, we directly supported 6.2 million kids with new supplies.
