I was given $25 to buy as many school supplies for a child in need as possible and donate what I gathered. A school nearby has a program where they accept donated supplies and backpacks to children who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford these items, so I chose to go ahead and donate to that program.
The first item I bought was a backpack. I bought a simple black bag, so that it could be used by a boy or girl. I was able to buy this on sale for $9.99 from CVS. I then went to Meijer, a local supermarket in a nearby town, and was able to get almost all of the supplies most kids need for the remaining $15.00. By looking for back-to-school sales, I was able to get most items for at least 50% off, and many for more than that. For example, I was able to get spiral notebooks that were regularly $.99 for only $.17 each.
Here are the items I collected for donation.
It took me minimal time and effort, and as you can see was fairly inexpensive, to provide such a great community service to a child in need. I hope you’ll find inspiration to pay it forward.
