Back-to-School Drive

Help kids start the school year with the supplies to succeed

On the very first day of school, more than 80% of teachers in Central Florida report at least half of their students arrive to class without the necessary school supplies to learn.

Access to supplies impacts student self-esteem, interest in learning, and class participation, so teachers will often purchase supplies out their own pockets for their students.

Help us help them. Sign up and start a school supply drive today!

For every $1 received, up to $10 worth of supplies can go back into the classroom for students. Give online today!
