Our annual school supplies drive is still very active. As the cost of back-to-school supplies continues to climb as families are expected to spend record amounts in 2019/2020. The problem is! they dont have it to spend. Our families with children in elementary school through high school are still struggling to get the basic school supplies for their children.Yet there is still clothing and uniforms to be purchased.For low-income families, back-to school costs can be a major factor in whether the family can buy food and pay monthly bills. ABSA-USA continue to run these programs annually to offset the needs to the families and the communities we serve.

We truly appreciate your continued help and support. We could not have done it without you. So please continue to assist us.

Teachers are straight-up awesome. Unfortunately they are faced with challenges every day, the biggest being not having the basic supplies for their students.

Rather than let their students go without basics like pencils and notebook paper, and more, many teachers spend their own money on school supplies for their classrooms.

That would be considered a sweet gesture if teachers were trillionaires, but the reality is they struggle doing so.

Antigua and Barbuda Students Association USA, saw the need and has committed to helping our teachers.

Teachers aren’t just awesome. They are downright selfless.

4 Ways to Donate to ABSA-USA 2019/2020 School Supplies Drive

Want to help teachers defray the cost of classroom supplies? Here are a few options.

1. If you have a few dollars to spare, consider supporting a classroom through donation at:

2.Some project donations go toward basic necessities like furniture’s (desk and chairs for students) while others help fund technology purchases to enhance learning in the classroom.

You can also select what school in Antigua and Barbuda your donation money goes to. Some projects need as little as $ meet their goal.

3.Organize a back-to-school donation drive within your church, work place or your community. We collected over 12,000 items during a recent donation drive, including pencils, backpacks, markers and scissors.

4. Shop for your kids’ school supplies at retailers running buy-one-get-one-free sales, then donate the free items to ABSA-USA School supplies drive.

Please continue to help us, as we continue to work hard to support the communities we serve.

Sometimes we take for granted the simple and basica things in life. However there are many families struggling to acquire such basic needs. We would like to continue helping these families by providing the neccessary items they need to live a productive life. The School suuplies drive is a great way to help and we "Thank you for your continued support". This is our fourth year, please continue to give what you can. Your service is also greatly appreciated as we are always looking for volunteers. 

When families face decisions, such as keeping their lights on or their children’s bellies full, it means their children’s backpacks remain empty. Every school year, these students bear the burden of knowing their families cannot provide the required classroom supplies.

If preparation is the key to success, think of the difference it can make for these children to have the classroom tools they need. Something seemingly so simple as a pencil and paper has a tremendous impact in a child’s success in the classroom and in life.

When teachers have students who cannot provide their own materials, it places an incredible burden and strain on the classroom. How will they ensure these students can participate fully? How will they ensure equity? Educators are increasingly expected to provide supplementary and even foundational supplies for their classrooms, often just so they can provide basic curriculum and instruction. They regularly do so, making it the rare profession where an employee takes money from their own pocket to pay to do their job.

Please help us to make it a great year.
