The high cost of school supplies post a challenge to parents and impacts students during back to school season and beyond. In 2021, on average, it cost $275 for one student during back to school time – now consider having 3 or more kids, the price hikes and no more free meals in schools. School supplies give kids the needed structure to basic learning. Just in the last year, 42% of parents had to take money from their kids college fund to pay for their back to school fees and supplies. On top of that, teachers pay an average of $500 out of their very own pockets!
Coloff Media radio stations are helping out with the 2nd annual Back to School Supply Drive. All donations will stay with our local schools.
