School Supply Drive
Back to School is a happy, hectic time, but, according to a Junior Achievement USA study, nearly 60% of parents say that it's a struggle to afford school supplies. As you can imagine, that statistic is likely to be much higher for the parents of our children.
Each year, West End Center partners with businesses in the community as well as individuals to provide each child with the supplies they require for school.
We believe that education is a critical component of success, but it's hard to be successful or even interested in academic pursuits, if you do not have access to the necessary tools.
If you would like to join us in making sure first day jitters come from the excitement of a new year and not from the embarrassment of being unprepared, we welcome your support in the form of school supplies from the list on this page. If you prefer to make a monetary donation instead, click here and designate your gift as Back to School.
