There is an alarming opportunity gap in our schools. Low income children and students of color disproportionately face barriers to academic achievement. Schoolhouse Supplies works to remove a barrier to success by ensuring each student has the school supplies they need.
Access to school supplies equips kids with essential learning tools – bolsters their self-esteem – allows them to focus on learning – and shows them their community believes in their ability to achieve!
A local classroom teacher recently shared, “I strongly believe that providing materials – pencils, erasers, paper, etc. – for students removes a barrier for them.”
You can ERASE THE GAP. Please invest in local children with a financial contribution to Schoolhouse Supplies.
Thank YOU for joining us in the belief that all children have the right to learn and succeed.
DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT!
