BACK-TO-SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE

set a Title I student up for success

Esperança is hosting its annual Back-to-School Supply Drive to help children from Title I schools in rural Arizona communities in need begin the school year with all of the tools they need for academic success. After over a year fighting the financial battles that accompanied the COVID-19 pandemic, low-income families need your help more than ever.

According to the most recent study by the National Retail Federation, families with children in K-12 are projected to spend $696.70 on back-to-school supplies. Investment in virtual learning tools may also be necessary for remote learning.

For families in low-income, rural communities, these costs take an extreme toll. Donating new school supplies to children like Lei Lanni (pictured) will ensure they start the school year out on the right foot – and are ready to participate in Esperança’s after school health classes!

New school supplies needed include:

  • Backpacks
  • Spiral notebooks
  • Pencil boxes
  • Glue sticks
  • Pencils
  • Pens
  • Highlighters

 

  • Scissors
  • Box of colored pencils
  • Crayons
  • 1” binders
  • Pocket folders
  • Rulers

Back-to-school drive donations are eligible for a dollar-for-dollar Arizona Charitable Tax Credit.
