Parents with limited incomes are often forced to choose between getting their children ready for school and paying their rent or utilities. By helping families with school supplies, students can begin the school year with confidence and be “ready to learn”.
Redeemer collects school supplies for school-aged children (preschool – 12th grade) in Clinton County, north Lansing schools and SafeCenter (domestic violence program). These items are sorted and placed in new backpacks and provided to students before they begin the school year.
How to Get Involved
- Purchase recommended school supplies and large backpacks. (The large backpacks work best for all ages. Elementary school children have snow gear, lunch boxes, etc. Middle School, Jr. and Sr. High have books and binders.)
- Help sort and pack school supplies to fill age-specific backpacks.
- Provide Items Needed: Crayons (24ct), Glue Sticks, Pencils, Pens (Black, blue & red), Colored Pencils, Markers (Thick & thin), Pocket Folders, Scissors, Pencil Case(s), 3-Ring Binders, Spiral Notebook, Erasers (Big Pink & Pencil Top), Highlighters, Pencil Sharpeners, Large Size School Backpacks
