I Need Your Help – KidWorks Is In Need Of School Supplies

Happy Wednesday everyone, hope this week hasn’t dragged for you like mine has, but I’m positive it has only felt like a million years because the Hubs and I are going camping out to Joshua Tree this weekend AND I’M SO EXCITED TO MAKE SMORES.

Many of you know I’ve begun volunteer teaching at KidWorks, a local children’s charity that serves at-risk youth in Santa Ana. In lieu of summer approaching, they are in desperate need of school supplies for its summer programs.

I’ve got 1,000 followers on this blog and if each of you sent a $5 gift card from Walmart, Target, Amazon, etc. It would make a huge difference in these children’s lives. 

I’m hoping to collect enough gift cards to go out and make the school supply purchases. I will post updates regarding how much was raised and how much stuff we were able to raise (together) for this program.

Here’s an idea of what they’re looking for:

  1. Binders
  2. Composition Notebooks
  3. Spiral Notebooks
  4. Wood Pencils
  5. Mechanical Pencils
  6. Graph Paper
  7. Poster Paper
  8. Erasers
  9. Crayola Crayons & Markers
  10. Colored Pencils
  11. Dry Erase Markers
  12. Dry Erase Erasers
  13. Colored Chalk
  14. Tape
  15. Glue Sticks
  16. First Aid Kits
  17. Post Its
  18. Index Cards
  19. Acrylic Paints
  20. Rulers
  21. Index Cards
  22. Kleenex Boxes
  23. Hand Sanitizer
  24. Construction Paper
  25. Scissors
  26. Clorox Wipes
  27. Black Sharpies
  28. Dictionaries/Thesaurus
  29. Manila Folders
  30. White Printer/Copy Paper

This is only HALF the list! KidWorks serves over 500 kids a day between all four of their locations and could use all the help they can get.

If it feels sketchy sending me a gift card with $5-$25 on it, please don’t! It feels weird for me to ask a bunch of ‘strangers’ but I’m honest, swear it! I’ll even provide you picture proof of all the supplies delivered!

Please send the gift cards to this address: 1302 Industrial Drive Tustin California 92780

Thank you in advance!
