Back to school is a stressful and exciting time for everyone whether you are entering college, starting high school, or heading back on the elementary school bus. What most of us don’t think about, however, is the millions of school kids in America that can’t afford new items like dependable book bags, notebooks, and pencils. In many cases school supplies list can amount up to $200 extra; a feat which is unreachable for many underprivileged families.
This back to school season, we encourage you to donate your old items like books, book bags, and art supplies as well as new items like pens, pencils, and paper. If you don’t have reading materials to donate try purchasing discount books at thrift stores, goodwill, or clearance books on eCampus.
We also recommend a giving spirit with everything you do to gear up for back to school. Many companies include donations to a variety of charities with every purchase. For example, eCampus is sponsoring 4 clean water initiatives in northern Ethiopia. Find out your favorites and start feeling good about yourself with the choices you make.
