SUPPLIES & BEYOND
The heart of our mission is accomplished through our programs. Since 1997, we’ve committed to equipping hundreds of thousands of students with the supplies they need and the tools they deserve. We’re proud that 20 years later we are still continuing to provide innovative support to students and teachers in meaningful ways.
Why do teachers need our programs? Their students arrive empty handed. Their budgets are often limited or
nonexistent. They spend hundreds and thousands of dollars out of their pockets to help create a successful learning environment in their classrooms. Our qualifying schools have more than 60% of their student populations on free or reduced-cost lunches. That’s nearly 150,000 students throughout Greater Cincinnati. With the help of donors, volunteers, and other partnerships, we are able to make an incredible impact.
While basic supplies like crayons, pencils, glue, and scissors will always be the core of what we provide, we have a strong tradition of creating and manufacturing educational tools and resources that can be used in the classroom. All our programs support, in unique ways, our vision of providing underprivileged children with the necessary tools for success in school and beyond.
