The Issue: School Supplies for Underserved Students

In 2010, the National Retail Federation projected that the average family would spend $96.39 on school supplies that year. Yet more than half of the students enrolled in the Auburn School District qualify for free or reduced-price lunch according to a Washington State report card issued by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. Many of these low-income families may find it difficult to provide their children with the adequate school supplies to enable academic success.

The Campaign: Providing Supplies for Underserved Students

If this Grassroots campaign raises $350, then Communities In Schools of Auburn can provide 10 Auburn students from low-income families with back-to-school supply kits. Supply kits include items such as a backpack, binder, dividers, paper, pencils, pens, glue sticks, pencil pouches, crayons, and markers. Each additional $35 raised can provide a back-to-school kit for another underserved student.
