MINNEAPOLIS – August 19, 2016 – The Kids In Need Foundation (KINF) announces today that it’s teaming up with Amazon School Lists and Everest Backpacks to give 10,000 backpacks to students in need of free school supplies. In addition to the donation, an Amazon School List has been created so KINF supporters can help fill the backpacks with required school materials such as pencils, markers, notebooks and more.

The backpacks and school supplies will be distributed to deserving students through the Kids In Need Foundation’s 38 Resource Centers that serve more than 4.8 million students and 150,000 teachers annually. The donated items will be made available to teachers from low-income schools when they visit the Resource Centers to obtain free supplies for their students.

“As students across the nation head back to the classroom this month, it’s critical they are set up for success,” said Dave Smith, executive director of the Kids In Need Foundation. “For kids in low-income communities, a new backpack, filled with essential school supplies, can boost confidence and create a love of learning. We are excited to be able to foster a greater classroom experience for students and teachers nationwide.
