Please consider donating to C.R.I.S.P. to support our SchoolSupplies4Kids Project!

What?! The kids just got of school you say!

But the new school year is only a few months away!

What do we do with this project? How is it organized? Why do we start so early?
  • C.R.I.S.P. has already collected the 2013-14 Madison County Schools' Supply Lists.
  • The total Madison County supply needs are being estimated in May and early June.
  • June & July are our School Supply Fund Raising months - we are able to order most supplies in bulk very cheaply through a special account, so cash donations are greatly appreciated. This way we can order packs for each grade level for each school (they all vary) and it sames on organization and distribution time (which in turn saves on staff costs).
  • C.R.I.S.P. families will be contacted by the end of June & responses are due no later than July 3rd.
  • Towards mid or later July we will have a volunteer - sorting week to get the pack organized.
  • At the end of July we will notify parents and families of pick up times which will be in early August.
  • School registration is August 7th and school starts on August 21st.
Phew! So you see, with this project, we at C.R.I.S.P. will be busier than bees!
