Inspiring Hope

Equipping teachers and students with the supplies they need and empowering them to thrive!

Teachers and students have the resources they need to focus on learning.

With your help, School Supply Santa provides the student supplies, classroom supplies, and counseling supplies that free teachers to connect with their class and students to dive
into learning.

Students are empowered.

A backpack is more than just a backpack. It’s a student’s luggage for the year—the place where they keep everything they need. A pencil is more than a pencil—it allows a student to write their story. At School Supply Santa, we know that even basic supplies are filled with hope!

Teachers are supported.

Teachers are our true heroes! As a teacher, it’s easy to feel stretched, discouraged, and concerned for the students you care about. We want to extend God’s love to teachers and show them how much they’re appreciated for all they do!

Adequate supplies allow students to thrive in their learning.

Many people aren’t aware of the mountain of needs that exist in our educational communities. From crayons to backpacks to mental health tools, we want to pour out love on students and staff to show them that their community cares. School supplies are a basic way to show our students that they are not only appreciated by their community, …but ultimately that they are loved unconditionally by their Creator.
These supplies give confidence to students and assurance to teachers, allowing them to focus on the important tasks of teaching and learning each day.

Student-teacher relationships are at their best.

Teachers play a very important role in the lives of our young people. When each member of the class has their physical needs met, everyone has more capacity to make the most of their relationships and their school days.

Students have the supplies they need in order to learn.

Students don’t have to spend their classroom hours worrying about things like having writing utensils and notebooks. Instead, they can put their full focus on the pursuit of learning.

Teachers and administrators are equipped to help students.

We work with over 41 schools to equip staff with supplies to dispense to students so that they can focus on earnestly teaching each child.

Schools are empowered!

Teachers and administrators
are empowered to give students the supplies they need, so students can feel equipped and excited for their education.

Many students in our community don’t have the basic school supplies they need in order to do the work of learning each day. School Supply Santa links school supplies with schools and students in need. When teachers and administrators have extra supplies, they are equipped to provide their students with the means to effectively learn and grow.

Empower success and bring hope by investing in students!

Everyday, teachers work hard to make sure their students have what they need to succeed. Without the right supplies, kids struggle to do the work of learning, and they lose confidence in themselves. It’s a perpetual cycle that can be hard to break, especially as they get older. At School Supply Santa, we know that school staff members want to be able to empower their students to thrive. The problem is the sheer number of students who don’t have the supplies they need to adequately focus on learning. This makes both teachers and students feel discouraged, frustrated, stretched, and stuck right from the start of the school year.

We believe that every student should have the basic supplies they need in order to get a solid education. When staff can give students the resources they need, it frees them up to focus on connecting with and educating every young person in their midst. That’s why we help provide teachers and administrators at over 40 schools with the supplies they need to give students a strong foundation. When you partner with us, you can help teachers and students be equipped to do the important work they need to do —TEACH and LEARN!

These supplies are one of the resources that helps form these students into wonderful adults, and helps bridge the gap of equity.
