There's something exciting and wonderful about new school supplies. Remember the smell of a new box of crayons, picking out the perfect backpack, and writing for the first time in a new notebook of crisp lined paper?
Many families in Southwest Missouri struggle to afford the costs of school supplies, leaving children and teens unprepared for learning. However, you can change that! With your help this summer, seven of our Neighborhood/Community Centers will provide school supplies and more to an estimated 950 children and teens in the Ozarks.
Your donation provides students the gift of self-confidence as they start the 2021-2022 school year with the supplies they need to be successful learners. 100% of all donations will go toward providing essentials such as a new backpack, paper, pens, markers, folders, hygiene items, clothing, and more to students in grades K-12.
Thank you for making a positive and lasting impact in the life of a young person.
