For the more than 31% of children who come from lower-income families living in the New Haven community, getting school supplies can make all the difference in the world to their future success. How can a child be expected to succeed in the classroom without the basic tools to learn?
Studies show teachers and educators have witnessed when students have sufficient school supplies of their own:
Grades, classroom behavior, and engagement improvement
Attitudes toward school and learning strength
