Help Kids Succeed 2019

Thompson Education Foundation's Help Kids Succeed school supply program makes a difference for students from the moment they enter the classroom at the beginning of the school year.

Each year, 1 in every 10 students in Thompson School District struggle to purchase their school supplies. Often, these economically vulnerable students have multiple stress points in their family life that can interfere with focus in the classroom. Providing school supplies for the first day of school immediately removes one area of stress for students and their families.

Volunteers are needed! Volunteers will sort school supplies for packing before filling backpacks in anticipation of delivery day to schools. You will receive an email with final details a few days before your shift.

HKS volunteer shifts are very popular. Please sign up for only 1 shift so that others can participate. You can only volunteer for a shift if you are pre-registered.
