Help Alameda students start off the school year “Equipped 4 Success” with new backpacks and school supplies! Our goal is to support 1,000 homeless, formerly homeless and very low income Kindergarten – 12th grade students with new backpacks and grade-appropriate school supplies that they need to be ready to learn on the first day of school.
School supplies are distributed to low-income students served by the:
- Alameda Unified School District’s McKinney-Vento Program (for homeless families)
- Alameda Point Collaborative (serving formerly homeless families)
- Alameda Boys & Girls Club
- Girls Inc. of the Island City
- Alameda Head Start
- Woodstock Child Development Center (serving low-income preschoolers)
Together we can ensure that a lack of pencils, pens or paper does not stand in the way of any Alameda child’s education!
