Each year, thousands of children in Duval County go back to school without proper supplies. Many of the children that come to us for help do not have the means to obtain school supplies on their own. Too often this results in the child having difficulties in school due to embarrassment, poor self-concept, and lack of motivation to excel.
The provision of these supplies assists in increasing attendance, academic performance and motivation through the promotion of positive self-esteem.
