Ready for Back-to-School

Coordinated by A Gift for Teaching to help students start the new school year excited and prepared to learn, “Ready for Back-to-School” is a community giveback campaign powered by three back-to-school initiatives:

  • The Great Big Backpack Build®
  • Back-to-School Drive
  • Back-to-School Telethon

Community sponsors are recognized throughout the entire back-to-school season for their support of local teachers and students.
