Goal

It's not too late to help a kid!  Get Set Go! is our annual initiative to provide essential school supplies to children living in poverty.  This year is like no other - children are expected to attend school in untraditional environments regardless of whether or not they have what they need to succeed.


Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School is a Title 1 school in Oakland, California.  97% of students are living below the poverty line.  88% of the student body are BIPOC.  Despite the school year commencing virtually in mid-August, many of these children still lack the supplies they need to participate.  100% of your donation will be used to provide a student at this school with the supplies they need to succeed.


Every school supply pack will include a backpack or laptop bag filled with required supplies plus a reusable facemask and bottle of hand sanitizer.


Kindergarten pack includes crayons, markers, colored pencils, glue sticks, liquid glue, construction paper, watercolor paints and brushes, color chalk, folder, composition notebook, pencil, eraser, pencil sharpener, pencil pouch, kids scissors, reusable facemask and bottle of hand sanitizer.
