Families who are struggling for their own survival and basic needs are not always able to provide their children with the materials that will help them thrive in school.
The gift of basic school supplies facilitates a child’s learning and creativity. It allows them to focus on their learning environment rather than focusing on how to find materials which they are lacking. Even though something as common as a pencil or pen can be easily overlooked, without them the child can not take their spelling test, practice arithmetic, or write stories. With a box of crayons a child can express themselves through visual language. These simple gifts open door for a lifetime of learning.
