Retail Pick-up Programs

KINF’s pick-up programs, driven by our generous partners, offer an opportunity for teachers in underserved schools to receive free items for their classrooms. As our retailers transition seasonal items and make shifts in inventory, those products are set aside to be donated to local, under-resourced schools.

Here are a few key details:

  • We offer fun, seasonal decor items, arts and crafts supplies, activities, incentives, and wearables that inspire creative learning for your students, and much, much more!

  • Teachers or staff members in schools with a student eligibility of 50% or more in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) are eligible for this program.

  • You will be required to submit both an online pick-up report and provide the store with a signed receipt for each pick-up. The online form is very short and takes less than a minute of your time.

  • Pick-up dates generally occur monthly, with the exception of June and July for summer break.

Apply to join our Retail Pick-up Program

Teachers, fill out the form to the right to apply.

As we match stores with teachers and schools, we will reach out to coordinate details. If there is no store in your area at this time, we will keep your information on file for future opportunities.

Sometimes we have other product donation opportunities with partners like Five Below that may be extended to you throughout the year. Having your information in our records will help us regularly communicate new opportunities to you when they become available.

If you have any questions, contact us! We look forward to continuing to inspire learning and creativity in your classrooms through our pick-up programs!
