Studies show that when kids have new school supplies of their own:
- Grades, classroom behavior, and engagement improve
- Self-esteem increases
- Attitudes toward school and learning strengthen
Metropolitan Ministries works to get kids the supplies they need by providing backpacks, uniforms, and school supplies to more than 5,000 children annually.
Backpack to School works to help them.
By selling spelling bee kits and hosting an annual live “Buzzed” Spelling Bee + Backpack Drive, we raise money to buy the items that students need most as they enter the new school year.
We have collected more than 1,654 backpacks for kids in the Tampa community and look forward to growing the pile!
