Target and Yoobi Donate Nearly $6.5 Million in Backpacks and School Supplies

The Kids In Need Foundation ensures that every child is prepared to learn and succeed by providing free school supplies nationally to students most in need. In their 22-year history, they have distributed more than $900 million in supplies to children who would otherwise go without.

“We want to thank Target and Yoobi for helping us improve the educational experience for students most in need, and we are confident this initiative will make a huge impact in the lives of children across the country,” said Dave Smith, executive director of The Kids In Need Foundation. “When students are prepared for school, they perform better in the classroom, and they have the confidence they need to succeed in all aspects of life. In fact, a KINF-sponsored survey of 10,000 teachers said when students have the supplies they need, there is a more equal learning environment, increased classroom participation, and increased homework completion rates.”
