There are more than 400,000 disadvantaged children in our metro Atlanta service area, all of whom are continuing their learning from home during the COVID 19 outbreak. These students may not have access or the ability to buy the necessary items to complete their assignments.
With your help, we will distribute At-Home Learning Kits consisting of essential school supplies, including pencils, pens, crayons, paper, markers, notebooks, note cards, etc. to 50,000 students. We are partnering with local school systems to make these supplies available to students at food distribution sites.
The retail cost of these items would be around $20 per student – precious funds that struggling parents, many of whom have lost their jobs or had their hours significantly reduced, simply don’t have to spare. With our buying power and wholesale relationships, we can purchase these items for about $5 per child!
We want to ensure these children don’t become even more disadvantaged during these difficult times. Let’s help EVERY student continue their studies!
