We are looking for off-site volunteers to purchase fleece and make tie blankets for kids PreK-12th grade. This opportunity is ongoing as the need for teachers to provide these items for their students has increased.

Blankets can be any size and design!

Our Resource Center serves Minnesota teachers through a variety of distribution channels. For teachers located within the Twin Cities area, we offer an in-store shopping experience or curbside pick-up at our location in Roseville. We also support teachers who are located outside of the Twin Cities through extended services to ensure product makes its way into the hands of under-resourced teachers and students who need them most.

-------
We welcome you to drop off your donation Monday-Friday between the hours of 10am-4pm. You can drive around to the front, call the number listed and a member of our team will be happy to meet you!

Mission Statement

By partnering with teachers and students in under-resourced schools, the Kids In Need Foundation provides the support needed for teachers to teach and learners to learn. The Kids In Need Foundation Teacher Resource Center, operates as a free store for eligible teachers serving at area schools where at least 50% of students are enrolled in the federal free or reduced lunch program.

Description

Kids In Need Foundation believes every child in America should have equal opportunity and access to a quality education.

What is unequivocally true: education is the gateway to empowering students to reach their full potential. Since 1995, Kids In Need Foundation (KINF) has provided the school supplies and learning resources needed to level the playing field, the only national nonprofit to focus its efforts on the country's most underserved schools, those with an enrollment of 70% or more participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP).

We strategically mobilize our efforts and resources through our foundational programs-Supply A Teacher, Supply A Student, and Second Responder-and our National Network of Resource Centers, a collection of more than 40 well-established, mission-driven organizations across the country. Each year through our programs and Network, we serve an estimated 5 million students, 205,000 teachers, and provide over $70 million in product at no cost to schools or teachers.
