Help Kids Succeed

School Supply Program

Does your student need a backpack?

If your family needs assistance with obtaining school supplies, please request backpacks at the school is registered to attend starting in August during open hours at each TSD school. 


If you have students in different schools, you must go to each school.
Elementary, Middle and High school students have different supplies in their backpacks.



TEF welcomes donations for the Help Kids Succeed school supply program! When donating, consider that a new backpack filled with supplies for a K-12 student can cost $75 or more. TEF partners with purchasing providers to offer the same filled backpack for $25, allowing your support to go further to benefit more students. A gift of $100 will provide backpacks for FOUR students! We accept donations year round for Help Kids Succeed.



While school children celebrate summer break, Thompson Education Foundation staff and volunteers are focused on the Help Kids Succeed program by sorting school supplies and stuffing backpacks. Volunteers make Help the Kids Succeed program possible: each year, over 200 volunteers help with the July packing event! Use the button at the top of the page to sign up to volunteer in 2022.
