Smiles for School

Smiles for School

“Smiles For School” is a Kids Helping Kids elementary project for students entering grades 1-5 who would like to help assemble back-to-school backpacks and school supplies for low-income families.

Los voluntarios que asistan a este proyecto estarán armando mochilas para otros estudiantes de la comunidad, no para ellos mismos. Todas las mochilas se han prometido a Person-to-Person y se entregarán una vez finalizado este proyecto. A los voluntarios inscritos en este proyecto también se les pide que traigan suministros adicionales como donaciones para las mochilas que armaremos. Si no puede traer suministros adicionales, pero aún así le gustaría unirse a nosotros, es más que bienvenido. No dude en enviarnos un correo electrónico con preguntas adicionales.

Project History

This is a project that was started by a 1st grader, Conor, who wanted to help other kids that could not get their own school supplies. Our team will work hard to personalize special items for back to school and then fill backpacks with all the needed school supplies for elementary-aged kids who qualify for free or reduced lunch.

We are so grateful to BIC, ShopRite, and Staples for their 2023 donation of school supplies!
