While it’s not quite back-to-school time just yet, HSP is hitting the ground running with our School Supply Drive! Through this program, HSP helps impoverished students have the school supplies they need, so when August does roll around, they are equipped for academic success! Last year, HSP reached an estimated 3,200 needy kids in the area by supporting the DuPage Regional Office of Education’s Back to School Fair and distributing supplies to local schools with large populations of needy kids. This year, HSP will also be supporting Kane County’s Project Backpack in order to reach even more students.
New school supplies are important for every child to perform well in the classroom, and it is hard for children from low-income families to always have access to these resources. HSP will support both of these distributions with our annual School Supply Drive. We collect backpacks, pens, pencils, notebooks, art supplies, and more in order to help prepare underserved children for the upcoming academic year. The Back to School Fair is August 6th, and Kane County’s Project Backpack distribution is August 9th, so HSP is reaching out to our wonderful supporters (you) to bring in donations to help us provide for the needy kids served by these great events. Can’t donate by those dates? No problem. HSP will still be collecting supplies after these events and distributing straight to local schools with large populations of impoverished children. If you or anyone you know is interested in donating, please contact HSP at 630-221-8340 or email@example.com.
