Help provide NEW school supplies!

For many kids in Milwaukee, the new school year is an exciting time filled with anticipation of seeing friends and learning new things. But for the one in three students living in poverty, starting a new year of school can be filled with anxiety.

Thanks to generous friends, we have plenty of certain items—like calculators, crayons, glue sticks and more—but we are still in need of the items below in order to properly equip each student for the new school year. Can you help?

(Please note: some items are hyperlinked to suggestions of products that you can order through Wal-Mart or Amazon, but you are welcome to purchase items at any store, in-person or online. Thank you!)
