Ready for School

Help get local children Ready for School from head to toe

Getting Local Kids Ready to Learn From Head to Toe.

To help alleviate the effects of poverty on school readiness, the Ready for School program distributes backpacks filled with new, age-appropriate school supplies and KidPacks filled with shoes, clothing, and more to ensure that the children we serve arrive at school ready and excited to learn.

This year, Ready for School aims to serve more than 30,000 disadvantaged students across the Commonwealth through partnerships with low-income school districts and local social service agencies.
