The mission of the Little Red Schoolhouse Project is to send children back to school with pride by supplying basic school supplies to families in need. For students who are already facing economic challenges, having quality school supplies can make a significant difference in their long-term success in school. Each contribution is an investment in the future success of our community. Donate today!

The Little Red Schoolhouse Project was founded in 1991. It is a non-profit organization under the fiscal sponsorship of FAMILY EDUCATION & SUPPORT SERVICES (FESS). Their mission is "to inspire healthy child development through the provision of quality family support services."
