Build-A-Kit

As Easy as A-B-C

Here’s an opportunity to Make A Difference and participate in our Back 2 School program by building school supply kits to distribute to children from low-income families. It makes for a great corporate team building event or fun activity for community groups and organizations.

Please note that you can host a Build-A-Kit event at any time of the year not just during the traditional back-to-school-season. We distribute our kits year-round.

  • A. Select the Organization you want to receive the kits.
  • B. Select the number and type of kits. There are four types of kits, each grade appropriate. Supplies are shipped in bulk along with cardboard kit boxes and plastic handles. Each kit holds approximately 30 supplies.
  • C. Select the location where you want the supplies sent for assembly – your office, warehouse, retail location – or choose to assemble them on-site where they will be distributed such as a church, school or other community organization.

EACH KIT COSTS $22.50* TO COMPLETE.
CHECK OUT OUR FOUR KIT TYPES AND THEIR CONTENT:

* Shipping of supplies to your assembly location is free. If we arrange for pick up the completed kits and delivery to the recipient school/organization, then a per pallet fee will be charged. For additional shipping information, including pricing, click here: LINK
