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, leaving letters of encouragement, and giving them a snapshot with a Polaroid so they can see the volunteer behind the gift of school supplies and education.
