Challenge

Through our backpack give-away program, Tools for Schools, we partner local companies with high-need elementary schools. The sponsorship allows the companies to give every child in their school a backpack full of new school supplies. Schoolhouse Supplies needs your help to cover the cost of the 9,000 backpacks we will be giving out in September 2009. Each back pack costs $3.65 - so every donation helps!

Solution

General fundraising including mail campaigns and small events, will help Schoolhouse Supplies reach our goal.

Long-Term Impact

Students who arrive at school prepared with the tools they need to succeed, experience higher self confidence and are more ready to learn that those who lack those basic supplies. Additionally, teachers will spend less of their own money on supplies
