School Supplies Drive - CSR Americas Partners with KINF for Returning to Classroom
Nomura CSR Americas will be partnering with the Kids In Need Foundation (KINF) to ensure that students in underprivileged communities are equipped with the basic necessities needed to succeed, beginning with school supplies.
In preparation for students returning to the classroom this fall, CSR Americas and KINF will be organizing a backpack donation drive. Each student will receive a backpack filled with notebooks, pens, pencils, markers, folders, and paper. After four years, we are proud to continue this partnership to give back to those who need it most.
It all starts with a backpack!

After many challenges in 2020, underserved communities and school districts have lost resources and funding to provide for their students, and teachers have often used their own paychecks to bridge that gap.
The KINF’s mission is to provide under-resourced school districts with essential school supplies to give children a strong foundation for learning, leveling the playing field for students in marginalized communities. With 15 million children from families struggling to fight economic hardship, many students are at a disadvantage before they reach the classroom. Every child deserves the same opportunities in education.
If you have any questions, please contact CSR Americas.
Supply A Student provides a backpack filled with school supplies to a student in need. While individuals can provide support for students, this program inspires groups and companies to come together to host backpack builds, fundraise to adopt an underserved school or provide company match programs.
