“The simple act of making sure that they have supplies to do homework is helping to close the achievement gap for these students. We have been told that the number of students not completing their homework due to lack of school supplies has virtually disappeared.”

Rainbow Pack

Rainbow Pack is a 501(c)(3) organization that raises funds and holds supply collection drives to assemble backpacks for elementary school students living under the poverty line. Riley Gantt and her team have raised $55,000 in cash and in-kind donations to outfit and distribute 5,500 backpacks full of items like pencils, crayons, makers, scissors, and glue, so low-income children have the school supplies they need to be successful learners.
