House of Ruth

Annual back-to-school supplies drive!

As summer holiday comes to a close, students of all ages are preparing for a new school year. Our program participants and their families are no exception; help us ensure they have all the necessary tools for learning by donating school supplies today!

Why Donate Back-to-School Supplies?

Education is an invaluable asset to our participants and their families, allowing them to shape their future and the world around them. Unfortunately, not everyone has access to the resources they need to succeed academically. Donating back-to-school supplies plays a crucial role in bridging this gap and setting the stage for brighter futures.

Having the proper tools contribute significantly to a student’s ability to engage in the learning process. They boost self-esteem, promote creativity, and open doors to new opportunities.

What should I donate?

  • Backpacks
  • Notebooks and Paper
  • Pens, Pencils, and Highlighters
  • Calculators
  • Crayons and Colored Pencils
  • and other educational tools…
