Backpacks and supplies – Tools for Learning
More than 1,200 students go to school in September without a backpack or schools supplies.
Some families have to choose between paying rent, feeding their kids or buying a backpack with supplies. Average costs of packs and supplies run between $25 and $50.
Our Tools for Learning program helps ensure these students and their families are provided with a backpack full of supplies to start the school year.
