Best First Day School Supply Fund

Thank you for helping kids throughout the Greater St. Louis region have their BEST FIRST DAY.

The BEST FIRST DAY is that first day of school when children arrive prepared, confident and ready to learn. Too often, children go to their first day without the basic supplies needed to succeed – or worse, don’t show up at all.

Because of many generous donors this summer, 535 local kids arrived at school with the tools to take on the new year with confidence and success. When kids have the necessary supplies to learn, they can focus on the big stuff like attentiveness, attendance and test scores. Thank you for helping local kids have the Best First Day!

School Supply Kits Delivered to Local Kids

One in five children may not have access to basic school supplies because of their family’s economic circumstances.

When equipped with school supplies, students have a more positive feeling of self-worth, miss fewer days of school, are more attentive in class, and achieve higher test scores.

Your support will provide basic items such as notebooks, pencils, crayons, erasers and folders for children in the Greater St. Louis region.
