School supplies can change lives

A pair of scissors or a pack of pencils may seem like a small gift, but for a child without them, it can mean having the chance to actively learn and strive for a brighter future. Help us put that power in their hands by donating the very supplies they need to succeed. Every pencil, notebook and crayon counts, and you can collect them however you’d like.

Box Tops for Education

Okay, so a box top isn’t a school supply. But you can still collect them to support our cause. We’re an official collection center for General Mills Box Tops 4 Education! Simply cut them out of your used cereal and snack boxes and mail them into our Resource Center. Every one can be exchanged for 10 cents to support schools in need!
