Essential School Supplies
Your group can provide a new backpack filled with school supplies for underserved children in the U.S. Each Kit helps build self-esteem and frees up family resources for other essentials such as food, medicine, and utilities. With these essential tools comes the opportunity to engage in learning, setting the foundation for a brighter future.
It’s a big help… we were struggling to buy school clothes, let alone school supplies.

THE NEED IS GREAT
CHILDREN LIVE IN LOW INCOME HOMES
With 21% of all children living in homes with income below the federal poverty threshold*, these simple school supplies ease the burden many parents feel when they are not able to provide for their children. By assembling backpacks filled with basic school supplies, you are helping children from under-resourced families feel more confident and motivated to learn.

SCHOOLTOOLS KITS ARE DISTRIBUTED TO LOCAL SCHOOLS IN UNDERSERVED COMMUNITIES
The World Vision Kits team delivers each SchoolTools Kit to elementary age students in the U.S. where it is needed most. You will have the option of donating your SchoolTools backpacks to a school or organization in your community, or World Vision can arrange to pick up and distribute them to children in need. This is a great Kit choice if your team is looking to make a local impact.
