Your $25 donation provides a brand-new backpack filled with an average of 13 grade-appropriate school supplies.
Besides ensuring the students have the supplies they need, the program strives to build self-esteem - an important factor to academic success.
In 2012, the program donated 2,534 packs, but the need continues to grow. Current figures from Poudre School District indicate over 8,500 students are eligible for the free or reduced lunch program. That's more than 32 percent of all the students in grades kindergarten through 12. In today's economy, your help has never been more crucial.
Since 1992, School Is Cool has helped more than 29,000 children. Last year, the program assisted 2,534 students in 46 schools with supplies.
