Having necessary school supplies helps set children up for success by providing the structure needed to focus on and engage in their education. Many of the families we serve cannot afford school supplies, which can leave students unprepared and insecure, as well as put pressure on teachers to fill the gaps for their many students. With your help, we can make sure that every child we serve is set up for success!
Back-to-School Wish List:
- 1 new backpack
- 1 reusable water bottle
- 4 folders
