More than 16 million kids live in extreme poverty in the U.S. and arrive on the first day of school without the supplies they need to learn. By partnering with select organizations and corporations nationwide, our School Ready Supplies program directly delivers school supplies to students in needy communities.

We do not donate supplies directly to other organizations, schools, families, or individuals.
