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 make these students succeed 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.
Join us for this virtual event as we learn about education in our local communities and connect over a fun activity at home. Let’s supply some kids!
