Help Families
Prepare for School

Why We’re Doing This

Nearly 2 in 5 Bay Area students struggle to obtain all the school supplies they need to learn. Supplies are expensive and with soaring inflation and fuel prices, this once necessity is becoming more out of reach for too many kids, as parents make tough budgeting decisions. This problem is even more pertinent for families experiencing homelessness. Without supplies, kids cannot complete their classwork and feel left out, causing teachers to spend upwards of $1,000 per year out-of-pocket to stock their classrooms.
