This July, we're inviting you to join our mission to send at least 2500 children in foster care back to school with backpacks full of high quality school supplies. 

It is important for children in foster care to receive quality school supplies for several reasons:

  1. Education and Learning Opportunities: Quality school supplies play a crucial role in enhancing a child's educational experience. Having the right tools, such as textbooks, notebooks, pens, and calculators, enables children to fully engage in their studies and maximize their learning potential. It allows them to participate actively in class, complete assignments, and pursue academic success.

  2. Equal Access to Education: Providing quality school supplies ensures that children in foster care have the same opportunities as their peers. It helps bridge the educational gap and ensures they can fully participate in classroom activities without feeling disadvantaged or excluded. By offering the necessary supplies, we create a level playing field where all children, regardless of their circumstances, can thrive academically.

  3. Boosting Confidence and Self-Esteem: For children in foster care, who may already face various emotional and psychological challenges, having quality school supplies can boost their confidence and self-esteem. When they possess the same tools as their classmates, they feel a sense of belonging and normalcy. It helps them feel more confident in their abilities and fosters a positive attitude towards education.

  4. Stability and Continuity: Foster care often involves transitions and disruptions in a child's life. Providing consistent and quality school supplies can offer a sense of stability and continuity amidst these changes. Having familiar and reliable materials helps children maintain a sense of routine and normalcy, which is vital for their overall well-being and academic progress.

  5. Empowerment and Independence: Quality school supplies empower children to take ownership of their education and become independent learners. When children have the necessary tools, they can organize their materials, complete assignments, and take pride in their work. It fosters a sense of responsibility and instills valuable life skills that can benefit them beyond the classroom.

  6. Encouraging Educational Aspirations: By providing quality school supplies, we send a message to children in foster care that their education is valued and that they have the potential to succeed. It can inspire them to set higher educational goals, pursue their interests, and develop a positive attitude towards learning. Quality supplies can act as a catalyst for their educational aspirations and motivate them to strive for excellence.

Overall, ensuring that children in foster care receive quality school supplies is crucial for promoting their educational development, enhancing their self-esteem, and empowering them to reach their full potential. It allows them to overcome barriers and equips them with the tools they need to succeed academically and in life.
