I just completed enrolling my three kids for the 2013 school year. We still have a few items left on the supplies list to purchase for all the kids but participating in a program to help spread some much needed school supplies into the system is a great feeling that we too can help out. It makes you feel good that you can make a difference by picking up a bag full of school supply necessities the kids can use to get them through the school year. Believe it or not parents struggle with full-filling the list of required school supplies especially if they have more than one child to provide for.
With wonderful programs through Champions for Kids like “Simple Service Project” and “Elmers Bag It forward” Kids are not getting left behind. They are being provided through gather, live, learn and share. This means people just like you and me can help.
I have a friend who’s been teaching in the inner city school for well over 20 yrs. Every year she tells me about children who come to school without the necessary tools needed for learning. Pencils, elmer’s glue, paper, scissors are easy and non-expensive items that can be donated to your local school to help these kids succeed.
I wrote about my shopping trip for school supplies for Elmers #BagItForward just a few weeks ago and shared this fantastic program and put together a Google+ photo shop to show you how easy it is and cheap these items can be purchased from your local Walmart.
This week I met up with my friend to give her the supplies. School started for them last week and she says she has so many kids in need and was so touched by the generosity of this program.
She was so excited to take the supplies into her students she messaged me this photos earlier today.
