For many of our kids, “back to school” means new teachers, freshly sharpened pencils, and the latest backpacks. But for some, school is a large financial burden.
Students need notebooks for homework and problem-solving, crayons, pencils and paper to learn to read and write, and backpacks to bring books to and from school.
Without these basics, kids who are in need not only fall behind their peers, their futures may be at risk. Essentials that we may take for granted are lifelines for children living in poverty.
