The Kids In Need Foundation provides free school supplies to the Resource Centers in our National Network across the country where teachers go to get free supplies for their students. All supplies donated to us by manufacturers and retailers go immediately to the Resource Centers. We do not have a warehouse from which we can draw supplies, so I’m sorry, but we do not donate supplies directly to other organizations, schools, families, or individuals.
