School Ready Program

Ensuring each child has access to the basic tools needed to achieve academic success.


In S.E.F we strongly believe that:

  1. No schoolchild should be held accountable for the financial circumstances their families currently face.
  2. No family should have the burden of not being able to provide the basic school materials for the education of their child.
  3. We all deserve an Education; we all deserve the opportunity to improve ourselves, our family, and our community.

Through sponsorship and donations, we have provided pre-assembled  backpacks filled with essential school supplies locally to families in  need.

Since 2016 S.E.F has provided more than 50,000 pre-assembled backpacks.  

Help  us provide complete Backpacks to Schoolchildren with all the supplies  needed to have the best start, supplies that they wouldn’t otherwise be  able to afford. 


Our Student Kits Include*:

1 backpack
3 pens, Black

3 Pens, red 

3 pens, blue
1 2-pocket folder
1 child's scissors
1 pencil case

12 pencils
1 box crayons

1 set markers
1 set colored pencils

1 pencil sharpener 

1 highlighter
3 notebooks 

3 folders

1 pack filler paper

2 large pink erasers 

1 12" ruler

2 glue sticks

1 school glue, 4 oz.

1 box tissues

*Student  Kits are build based on grade, and items are replaced based on that. We  wont give a High school Student crayons but we will provide a  scientific calculator instead.


But it’s not just about paper, pens, or binders-- it’s about giving the  gift of opportunity in school and life that many children will not  receive otherwise. 

With your help, SEF is leveling our community’s academic playing field.
