Mobile Van Program
Through our buying savvy, we load vans with school supplies, books, coats, art supplies, athletic equipment, personal necessities and more. The vans – think of them as huge magical and mystical backpacks – make deliveries throughout the entire year to qualifying public, private and charter schools, who have applied and been accepted for the program. The average van delivery has a retail value of $40,000.
Elementary and middle schools with at least 50% of their students eligible for the Federal Free/Reduced Lunch Program are welcome to apply for support.
Each year the program serves up to 50 schools, which amounts to approximately 20,000 students and 1,200 classroom teachers.
