Thank you to presenting sponsor, Dick Hannah Dealerships for matching the first $10,000 in donations!
Approximately 53% of VPS students come from families with incomes below the federal poverty guidelines, with some schools as high as 85%. For many, the added burden of purchasing school supplies could translate into falling behind on rent and utilities or reducing an already minimal food budget. By making a donation to the Write from the Start School Supply Drive, you can help the approximately 11,000 Vancouver Public School students who live in poverty within all 37 VPS schools & programs start the school year with the supplies they need to be successful.
