MissionSupply Our Students, Inc. is a non-profit organization that believes educational equity is one path towards a more just society. There is an undeniable gap between resourced and under-resourced students in our country that manifests itself in multiple ways, and exists for a multitude of reasons. The consequence of this gap is an undisputed learning divide; well-resourced students have access to the school supplies and technology they require to succeed in school which eases learning, while under-resourced students, who are without access to tools such as technology, are forced to navigate a far tougher learning environment.
Enter Supply Our Students, Inc. Our mission is to bridge the gap between what under-resourced students need as it relates to school supplies and technology, and what they currently have at their disposal.
