Help us erase the problem. Host a Supply Drive today.

While most students eagerly begin the school year with a new backpack filled with the necessary school supplies, thousands of our students in Hillsborough County Public Schools will enter the classroom without a backpack or any school supplies.

How can these students succeed when even a pencil is out of reach? 

By hosting a Supply Drive at your place of business, you and your employees will be making a difference in the lives of our students in need by giving them the opportunity to begin the school year with their own backpack filled with supplies. Plus, your donations will help us keep our shelves stocked to provide free supplies to our students throughout the school year. To get started, click on the link below.
