The Issue: Barriers to Learning for Low-Income Students

When students cannot afford necessary school supplies and other items recommended by school staff, it can be difficult for them to succeed at school and focus on learning. Communities In Schools of Federal Way seeks to prevent the negative outcomes of high-school dropout by providing students with the supplies they need to succeed.

The Campaign: Providing Backpacks Full of School Supplies

If this Grassroots campaign raises $500, then Communities In Schools of Federal Way can provide a backpack full of school supplies for 10 local students. The backpack's supplies will vary based on the needs of each individual child or teachers' requests, but a typical middle-school student's backpack will include three binders, pens, basic and colored pencils, erasers, five spiral notebooks, four highlighters, markers, glue, scissors, a pencil sharpener, graph paper, a pocket dictionary and thesaurus, and tissues. Each additional $50 raised will be used to supply another child with a backpack full of school supplies.
