The Back-to-School Necessities Drive is Back!
More than 15 million children in the United States live in extreme poverty. Add to that the approximately 13,794 identified students within LA Unified School District who are homeless. As a partner of the The Los Angeles Unified School District Homeless Education Program, the Share Necessities is part of the solution. Helping to alleviate the burden on already struggling families & educators our back to school drive gets kids ready for school with the essentials they need to succeed.
By partnering with select community allies throughout the city of Los Angeles, our Back to School Necessities drive directly delivers school supplies to students in underserved communities.
With your help last year we helped provide over 1,000 children in the LA area with the essential supplies they needed to succeed in school. This year with your help we hope to double that number. Spread the news, tell a friend, host a collection drive at your home or work place and together let us uplift the next generation.
