Our Ready for Learning program provides local students with new backpacks full of school supplies, plus clothing, shoes, books, hygiene kits, and more.  Every donation below will help us provide these critical items to children whose families are struggling to get back on their feet in the wake of COVID-19. 

Please help us get 50,000 children across the Greater Philadelphia region “Ready to Go, Head to Toe!” 

If you’d like to make a bigger impact, consider joining our Family Leadership Circle with a gift of $1,000 or more, or by choosing the $84 monthly option below. Your Leadership support will help us serve at least 30 local students – a whole classroom – who need our help.
