Education Access

Put together Education Access kits with needed school supplies for children in need in your local community.

What is Education Access?

About the cause: 15 million kids in the United States come from families struggling with extreme poverty. If these students are lucky enough to attend school, they often don’t have the resources to purchase the necessary school supplies. WeHero alongside our corporate and non-profit partners are aggressively trying to resolve this issue, sourcing the necessary supplies to get these students successful in the classroom.

About the event: The Education Access Project is a WeHero Volunteer Event delivering kits that have the necessary school supplies to underprivileged students in your local community. The kits are designed to be fun and to inspire the kids to want to go to school and stay in school. You’ll be adding your own touch and message to each kit you create, drawing fun pictures on the bags and leaving letters of encouragement, so the students know they have someone cheering for them!

How It Works

WeHero events are designed to be easy while maximizing impact.
