Help Kids Succeed

HKS Logo

Help Kids Succeed backpacks were distributed to Thompson School District schools at the beginning of the school year.
If your family needs help with obtaining school supplies, please request backpacks at the school your student is registered to attend. For example, if you have an elementary student and a middle school student, a backpack should be requested at each school (supplies differ between elementary/middle/high). If your school is out of backpacks, please ask the secretary to contact TEF. 


Thompson Education Foundation welcomes DONATIONS for Help Kids Succeed. When making a decision as to how much to help, consider that a new backpack filled with supplies for a K-12 student costs, on average, $75. Working with purchasing partners, TEF is able to provide the same backpack for $20, allowing more students to benefit from program donations. Only $20 brings a smile to a student’s face; $100 brings that smile to five faces.

Because of the discounts TEF can receive on supplies, we do not offer a long-term community supply pick up/delivery opportunity.
