Help us get students ready for school: Write from the Start
Did you know that half of students enrolled in Vancouver Public Schools qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, a Federal indicator of poverty?
For these families, and many others in our community, new school supplies often are difficult or impossible to afford. Not having the right tools makes it hard for students to begin learning on the first day of school.
The Foundation for Vancouver Public Schools is collecting funds to provide school supplies to kids in need this fall. With the support of sponsor, Dick Hannah Dealerships, the School Supply Drive will collect and distribute supplies to students in need in schools throughout the Vancouver School District.
Donate today to buy school supplies for Vancouver students so they have the tools they need to start the year right.
Families and kids aren't the only ones to benefit from your donation. Did you know that on average an elementary school teacher spends about $400 of their own money each year to provide supplies for their students? Your donation helps kids, parents, and teachers!
