Free School Supplies
When school rolls around, most families are out shopping and trying to prepare their children for the upcoming school year. There are new clothes to purchase, a book bag, lunch box, and shoes. In addition, many teachers require extensive school supply lists be filled. These lists can be quite expensive to fill, especially when you have more than one student in school. The good news is that there are free school supplies available to families that need them. You just have to know where to go looking for them!
One of the first places you might want to go to look for free school supplies is your school’s family resource center. Most schools will have a counselor that is able to point you in the right direction for school needs. Some schools will give out school supplies to families that can prove a need for them financially. Most of the programs are completely confidential, so your children won’t have to worry about anyone knowing where their supplies came from. In addition, if you have more than one child at a school, these programs will be easier for you to get into.
