In many school districts, school supplies are a luxury that many students go without. A few months into the school year, teachers are presented with a small paper bag of limited, mismatched school supplies and are told to "make do." Often, they must purchase the supplies needed to run the classroom out of their paychecks.

In fact, teachers spend an average of $356 out-of-pocket on school supplies every single year.

Kids deserve to have what they need. They deserve to have access to the school supplies needed to learn. They should be surrounded by good books, convenient supplies, and the materials necessary to conduct projects and experiments.

Students who aren't given the necessary school supplies (such as an up-to-date math book, a working calculator, and plenty of paper) can become frustrated and have a difficult time in class. Readily available school supplies let students and teachers focus on what's really important: learning.

You can help kids have a better education by donating school supplies to students in need. You can make a difference and will probably even find donate-able school supplies sitting unused in your own home or office.
