Pay It Forward with School Supplies

Feb 9th 2024

Pay It Forward

Have you ever waited in the drive-thru line, money in hand and ready to pay, only to find out that the person in the car in front of you has paid for your order? While it is a small gesture from a kind soul, it does bring feelings of surprise, a rush of joy, and lingering moments of gratitude. Random acts of kindness are pretty amazing.

Now, think how cool it would be if we could do that in our schools…for students. Well, not with coffee, but with school supplies. Oh, wait, you can! Sprout School Supplies is proud to offer our Pay It Forward program. The Sprout Pay It Forward program offers families the opportunity to order extra school supply kits for students in need. Last year, we kicked off the program and saw wonderful results. We had so many generous families order an extra school supply kit (or more) to be donated to a deserving student in their child’s classroom.

Ordering Is Simple 

At Sprout, it is our mission to make back-to-school shopping EASY on families. So, it only makes sense that ordering a Pay It Forward kit from us is also super easy. During the online ordering process, customers simply click a box, which automatically adds a Pay It Forward kit to their shopping cart. Once the school supply kit sale ends, a final sales report is sent to school notifying the administration and PTO/PTA of all donated kits by grade. A school representative reaches out to each deserving family before school starts to notify them of their donated kit, helping ease the financial stress of school supply shopping.

Customized Pre-packaged School Supply Kits

At Sprout, we provide customized, pre-packaged school supply kits that exactly match teacher-issued classroom supply lists. We also provide schools with prewritten marketing communication pieces to help promote supply kit sales. Plus, we guarantee on-time delivery to school before the 1st day, so kids have the school supplies they need to be set up for a successful school year.

Students Deserve the Necessary Tools to Learn

We are passionate about serving our schools and families. We believe that every child deserves to have the tools they need to feel confident in the classroom. We work with schools, school districts, and corporations to provide school supply kit programs that fit individual community needs. At Sprout, we have helped give back over a million dollars to local school communities through supply kit sales.
