To make this happen, my partners and I are like deal stalkers. We are constantly trying to find the best deals on everything in order to get the most supplies for our money. We want to help as many kids as possible. We also received some donations from some wonderful people to help purchase supplies.
We made sure to hit up Walmart when they put the supplies out. I semi turned this into a homeschool math lesson for Caleb. Lol
OfficeMax had some great penny deals too! They get sold out really fast so you have to get there really early. We managed to make it in one Sunday right when they were opening. However, there was still a line outside when we pulled up. We got a few good deals though.
We ended up being able to bless 80 kids ranging from prek to high school with free back to school supplies! We do believe even more would have showed up, but there were several different things going on that day.
Nonetheless, we are very proud and thankful to everyone that came out, participated, everyone who donated funds and school supplies. We are already planning for year 7!
