About KidSmart's Push for Pencils

KidSmart’s Push for Pencils, the largest drive of its kind in Missouri, is a community-wide school supply drive which takes place each summer. The movement is grassroots and includes more than 150 participating businesses, 50,000+ employees and individuals throughout our community. Each year, 500,000 essential school supplies are collected, and then directly distributed, to tens of thousands of local children through the KidSmart Free Educational Supply Store.

Studies show that children who are equipped with the proper tools for school have a much better chance of succeeding. KidSmart believes every child deserves to go to school equipped to learn.

There's no better way to welcome all our kids back to school this fall.  Let's help supply them with the learning tools they need.  

So, grab a box or container and encourage your staff and residents to donate one or more of the items listed below during the month of July.
