Provide School Supply Kit

After a year of distance learning, you can help a child from a low-income household to feel confident in their academic success post-lockdown. Your support not only provides essential school supplies — studies show that it also supports learning, self-esteem, and feelings of inclusion.

Studies also show that families who were already struggling before the pandemic are under significant additional financial gaps. With your help, we can give kids the tools they need so they can focus on being excited about resuming school life this fall.

Please consider sponsoring a student with a kit of school supplies. You can add these items to your next shopping run and schedule a donation delivery near you.


Yes! I want to provide a School Supply Kit:

...Or Sponsor a Kit

If you don’t have time to put a kit together, sponsoring a kit is a great way to make a positive impact in the lives of Mercy Housing residents. Your donation goes directly to buying items that residents need to be their best. These kits let residents know that their community cares about them.
It can cost as little as $15 for a school supply kit.
