OUR MISSION is to ensure that children and their classrooms in the Greater Metropolitan Saint Louis Area have the basic tools for learning by transferring, at no cost, the community's surplus supplies and merchandise into the hands of teachers for school children in need.
Every year KidSmart hosts Missouri’s largest back to school supply drive for St. Louis area children: Push for Pencils. More than 60,000 individuals come together and collect half a million back to school supplies to provide and fill backpacks for local children who otherwise would come to school empty handed.
Hosting an event to raise money and awareness for Push for Pencils is a great way to get involved on a whole new level. Just think outside of the collection box, and plan something you already enjoy.
Read here for some ideas people have already started doing.
Jared Cook joins the Push for Pencils as this years official KidSmart Back to School Ambassador. Through the generosity of Jared Cook and the St. Louis Rams please watch the above video they produced for us. As Jared Cook says, “Be a champion, help kids win in school!”
