Essentials for Education

Essentials for Education Back-to-School Supply Drive

Help our youth prep for success! School supplies are required tools for learning and success.  Providing and replenishing school supplies throughout the year will guarantee that the over 600 children in our care will have the tools needed to achieve their educational goals!

Positive school experiences enhance children’s overall well-being, helping them make positive transitions to adulthood, and increasing their chances for personal fulfillment and economic self-sufficiency.  Well-equipped students earn better grades, have higher attendance records and higher graduation rates. And, with your support of the Back-to-School Supply Drive, we can help guide our youth to the path toward positive future outcomes!
