Providing Supplies for Those In Need
Our Back 2 School initiative provides underprivileged children with school supplies. Since inception we’ve given our more than 11 million free school supplies by partnering with schools, government agencies, and community organizations. We distribute these supplies in the form of Back 2 School kits, each containing approximately 30 grade-appropriate school supplies.
While we distribute a majority of the kits during summer events, we actually give them out 365 days a year. The program is truly a year-round effort requiring thousands of man-hours and volunteers, as well as the gracious support of many companies and individuals.
Our Community Distribution Partners handle the distribution of our kits. B2SA does not directly provide kits to individuals. Click here for a list of B2SA’s Community Distribution Partners.
Low-Cost Internet & Computers – Internet Essentials by Comcast
We recognize that the digital divide impacts millions of families and is a barrier to children getting a first-rate education, which is why we’ve partnered with Comcast to help provide access to low-cost, high-speed internet through their Internet Essentials program. A low-cost laptop and Chromebook are also available. For more information click here.
Please note: Our Community Distribution Partners handle the distribution of our kits. B2SA does not provide kits to individuals.
