School supplies can be a financial burden for families, but Back 2 School America is here to help.
Volunteers from the non-profit unloaded a truckload of boxes containing pencils, crayons, glue sticks and scissors, all the supplies students need and deserve to start the school year. About 30 age-appropriate school items are in each kit.
Back 2 School America provides thousands of boxed kits year round and Wednesday, they packed the 10 millionth school supply kit, a milestone that merits celebration.
Matthew Kurtzman, CEO of Back 2 School America, said the supplies give children everything they need to begin school, including confidence. Each kit contains a handwritten cheerful note from volunteers who pack the kits.
Back 2 School America hopes that supplies help children get a better quality education.
With the cost of everything going up these days, the cost of school supplies is one less worry.
