Supplies for Students is an annual initiative run by volunteers of the Thames Valley Education Foundation whose goal is to ensure every child in need starts the school year with a new backpack filled with school supplies.
Last year alone, Supplies for Students provided approximately 1,600 backpacks to students in need.
