Even if you’re just wrapping up the school year and looking forward to summer break, back to school will be here before you know it. Don’t be caught off guard scrambling to get everything on your school supply list. Start thinking about stocking up now so you and your kiddos can have a stress-free start to the year.
Now is also a great time to consider the importance of school supplies for kids and communities in need. New school supplies help kids start the year on the right foot, so they can feel confident, prepared, and focused on their learning. According to Teach For America, “For students whose families cannot afford supplies, coming to school unprepared can create social and emotional challenges, in addition to putting kids at a disadvantage for learning.”
With schools increasingly placing the burden of pricey school supplies on parents and teachers, it can add even more stress to families just trying to make ends meet. In a survey by the National Center for Education Statistics, “94 percent of teachers spend their own money to stock their classrooms with the necessary supplies and resources.”
One way to give back to your community, to show appreciation for teachers, or to help kids in need, is to help offset some of the costs of school supplies with a donation.
