Smile Spotlight: Syracuse, NY
Thanks to our partnership with the national office of Phi Sigma Sigma, the Syracuse University Chapter of the fraternal organization chose to team up with the Kids In Need Foundation to fill 300 backpacks with essential school supplies. The backpacks were donated to North Side Learning Center, a local organization serving New York families and children in need. Check out the photos and video. Thank you, Phi Sigma Sigma for another great backpack giveaway event!
Wines For Humanity Backpack Give
Wines For Humanity, a wine sampling event company that raises funds for charity, donated 400 backpacks with core supplies to nine locations across the country this month, including six of our National Network Affiliates. The company also hosted a backpack building event in Chicago, IL, in conjunction with “National Love Our Children Day.” Check out Facebook for event photos, video, and more. Thank you, Wines For Humanity!
Tornado Season
Nationwide, March through June is designated as tornado season. This is a critical time for the Kids In Need Foundation’s Second Responder® program, which is dedicated to providing school supplies to students affected by natural disasters. 

Cynthia Brown, principal at W.M. Anderson Primary in Kingstree, SC, knows the struggles of running a school after a natural disaster: “Our students lost everything, including books and all their school supplies. So many organizations came into our communities with food, clothing, temporary housing, but no one thought about the educational effect…” 

Then the KINF Second Responder® team arrived with 500 filled backpacks. Brown said, “Our [students] jumped and yelled with joy. Tears were in my eyes as I saw happiness on the faces of children who had such lost in so many areas of their lives in such a short period of time.”

Teacher Talk - Quote of the Month

“This year I have been able to double the amount of experiments I am doing with my students because I don’t have to spend my personal money on the supplies. Thank you!”
