Kids Need School Supplies

Kids Need School Supplies is Hopelink’s campaign to help youth begin the school year on equal footing with their peers by providing backpacks and school supplies. Preparing to return to school can add financial strain for families who may already be struggling to budget their regular monthly expenses.
