    We ensure every child is prepared to learn and succeed by providing free school supplies nationally to students most in need.

    For the 16 million kids who come from families struggling with extreme poverty, getting school supplies can make all the difference in the world to their future success. How can a kid be expected to succeed in the classroom without the basic tools to learn?

    Recent studies* show that when kids have new school supplies of their own:

    • Grades, classroom behavior, and engagement improve
    • Self-esteem increases
    • Attitudes toward school and learning strengthen

    Last year, the Kids In Need Foundation helped 154,000 teachers and 4.8 million students in some of the most challenged communities across the country. In our 20 years, we have distributed nearly $800 million in supplies to kids who would otherwise go without.
