Every child has the power and ability to succeed in school and it is our responsibility to help. When a child has the right supplies for school, they feel prepared, do better and have positive feelings about going to school. Teaching reading and writing without supplies is nearly impossible as kids have no way to practice the skills being taught in school. Having pencils, paper and notebooks give children a way to take what they have learned and to practice and apply it.
Having the right supplies for school allow children to express what they have learned and provide valuable feedback to teachers. We can all contribute by donating to one of the many back to school supply giveaways in our city or by simply helping a family with children in need.
