Donate School Supplies

We need your help!

Every student in Montgomery County needs school supplies to be successful in learning. Unfortunately, many of our families are currently facing tremendous financial struggles, straining to afford adequate nutrition, let alone required school supplies. This past year, 33.2% of our students relied on federally funded school meals (FARMS) and that number continues to grow. In addition, the number of homeless students in Montgomery County is quickly approaching 1,000. These invisible families are our neighbors. You can make a difference in the lives of our students and support their education by donating backpacks and school supplies.
