Hi there, 

This is Kim Kirkland and Samatha Sheffield and we are starting a non-profit called Classroom Connection in Austin, TX

Our goal is to provide free school supplies to teachers for their students in need.

Many children in Austin go to school without the tools they need for learning.

We know first hand, having worked in and with schools and students, that teachers spend on average $300-$600+ of their own money, each year, to provide students with supplies they need. 

We need your help to change that and improve the public education system in Austin!

It would be amazing to be able to restock several classrooms this fall.

This effort has become quite a passion of ours! It would mean the world to us to see this through! We would be forever grateful and look forward to showing you how you've helped change lives!

Love,
Kim & Samantha

Hi all! A huge thank you to our generous donors! We've decided to increase our goal a bit to try and reach even more students in need! While most efforts are made at the start off school, many of those supplies are simply used up by January. Our goal is to replenish those with brand new ones and keep those kids spirits high! Every dollar is a pencil, crayon, or notebook in the hand of a hardworking child!
