STUDENT SUPPLY KITS

BEING PREPARED TO LEARN IS KEY TO SUCCESS

This year ESF will pack and distribute Student Supply Kits to more than 30,000 kids. Each kit contains at least 16 core supply items like pencils, pens, paper, crayons, and notebooks. The retail value of the supplies is between $45 and $75, but thanks to generous supporters from YOUR community, we are able to provide these supplies at no cost to you.

For the 2021/22 school year, we have reached the maximum number of Student Supply Kit requests that we are able to fill and are no longer accepting requests. Registration for the 2022/23 school year will open on June 15, 2022.

  • “ESF has been here every single year for my grandkids, and I appreciate them so very much because sometimes it was all that they got.”
  • "ESF helps me put a smile on my kid’s face!”
  • "I’m a single mom of four with two jobs. Without ESF my kids would not have gotten any gifts.”
  • I am a single parent of two boys. I work at a daycare making $9.50/hr. I have rent to pay, water, lights, phone, and a car note. I wasn't able to save anything. Santa’s Village was and still is important to me, because it gives my kids a sense of hope and the assurance that Santa hasn’t forgotten about them.”
  • I was a single mother of three children fleeing domestic violence. My spirits were down and I was so focused on rebuilding that I didn’t care about Christmas until I met with my social worker and she referred me to The Empty Stocking Fund. It relieved so much stress and made my kids so happy!”
  • “The experience far exceeded my expectations. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful, and everyone made me feel welcome. The selection was of excellent quality and was given in generous proportion. Thank you for helping my family during such a hard time."

HOW IT WORKS

Donations are used to purchase supplies and materials from wholesale vendors.

Volunteers assemble kits with core supplies like pencils, pens, paper, crayons, markers and more.

Kits are distributed at district events and through partners like the YMCA.
