Donate backpacks to agencies dealing with the homeless community. Homeless people need backpacks to carry their possessions.
Donate school supplies to
agencies which distribute them to needy children. Both family and
school budgets are tight; and schools are now asking families of
schoolchildren to supply beyond the basics with items such as hand
sanitizer, copy paper and scientific calculators. Parents requesting
these supplies will generally need to bring proof of eligible children,
such as a medical coupon and identification.
Donate to your child’s school, a specific teacher, or a specific project. View http://www.DonorsChoose.org to see what local teacher requests come from what schools. “Lessons in Gratitude. Teachers turn to online donors to fund classrooms.” CBS This Morning, Dec. 8, 2014
