Ensuring that all Howard County students return to the classroom this fall with the tools they need to succeed.
Pre pandemic there were more than 13,000 students in Howard County who qualify for free and reduced lunch—an indicator of poverty. We all know that school supplies are expensive. Having school supplies is a critical first step to help a student feel at ease, achieve higher literacy levels, improve academic performance, and graduate.
For $25.00 with bulk purchasing and donated supplies we are able to help assure that a student will return to school – prepared for success.
Our goal: For the coming school year, we want to provide over 3,500 students—pre-school through high school—with new backpacks full of supplies.
