Kids in Need Foundation


The Kids In Need Foundation’s Second Responder® program is dedicated to providing school supplies to students affected by natural disasters. We work with local authorities, schools, and select sponsors to help them return to normal routines. The Kids In Need Foundation operates four key programs (Second Responder, School Ready Supplies, Teacher Supply Boxes, and National Network Resource Centers) to help facilitate our efforts so that all students have access to quality school supplies to learn and succeed. In 2016 we supported 5.4 million kids and more than 150,000 teachers across the country through these initiatives.
