I support K to College because I believe them to be trustworthy and effective. I know or have met several of the people involved in this campaign and have seen the work they do and how they do it. They utilize donated goods and volunteers to stretch every dollar they receive. They have strong support from the community and the schools they serve. I hope the organization can continue to grow and can expand geographically. They have developed a good program that could be used in other schools with economically disadvantaged students.

From Our Editors

Pairing their civic-mindedness with a strong business sense, a group of University of California, Berkeley, students grabbed a laptop and a borrowed pickup and began delivering school supplies to underserved students across the region. Today, the nonprofit, K to College, distributes the resources students need to excel in school and attain a solid education. This nonprofit approach enables them to provide three dollars of supplies to disadvantaged kids for every dollar donated to K to College. Collaborating with local businesses, K to College creates grade-appropriate supply kits. Packed in a sturdy canvas tote bag, school supply kits of pencils, papers, and dental-care items go to public-school students in the free or reduced-price lunch program; alternatively learning kits are packed in pre-k back-packs. K to College also advertises back-to-school efforts through local TV stations and works with the Folsom State Prison to organize community-service opportunities for inmates as part of a rehabilitation program—an effort that caught the attention of CNN.
