As we navigate this unprecedented time with a new normal of “back to school,” our local students and teachers need us now more than ever. Because of this, we have decided to host a virtual school supplies drive for The Kids In Need Foundation, which serves students and teachers in under-resourced schools to provide the support needed for teachers to teach and learners to learn.

 

Teachers and students receive supplies from the Kids In Need Foundation via school distribution programs, ensuring they have the tools needed to succeed when entering their learning environment. This is not just about supplies, but also access to the most baseline access to equitable educational resources. Please help us to be a light during this challenging time for so many.

 

Please give what you can—every bit helps!


Kids In Need Foundation (KINF), a nonprofit organization that believes every child in America deserves equal opportunity and access to a quality education, provides the support and tools needed for teachers to teach and learners to learn. By providing essential school supplies, distance learning resources, and other classroom items in high demand, KINF partners with teachers in underserved schools to ensure students are prepared to learn in the classroom. In 2020, through its programs and National Network of Resource Centers, comprised of more than 40 mission-driven organizations nationwide, KINF served an estimated 5 million students, 205,000 teachers, and provided over $70 million in product at no cost to schools or teachers.
