Help Elmer’s Provide School Supplies to Kids in Need, and Enter This Giveaway for an Elmer’s Back-to-School Kit!

Posted Aug 19 2011 8:45pm
With four children, I spend a lot of money on school supplies. I’m very fortunate to be able to provide these items for my kids, but millions of others go without school supplies each year because their parents lack the resources. That’s why Elmer’s is embarking on a new partnership with the Kids In Need Foundation to help children in need get essential school supplies this back-to-school season. Kids In Need Foundation is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to providing free school supplies to economically disadvantaged school children and under-funded teachers. And here’s some great news: You can help!

From July 25 through Sept. 1, 2011, for each “like” on the Elmer’s Facebook page , the company will donate a product to the Foundation’s national network of free stores, where teachers from disadvantaged schools can “shop” for free for school supplies (up to 200,000 products for this campaign). Products to be donated include a variety of glues, foam boards, project supplies and pencil sharpeners. If you already like the page, they’ll make a contribution on your behalf, but you can donate again by watching a video on the Elmer’s Kids In Need Facebook tab and sharing it with your friends and family. With just one click, you will help a child in need!

I hope you’ll join Elmer’s and the Kids In Need Foundation in helping needy families receive the school supplies they so desperately need.


Elmer’s is also generously donating a back-to-school kit to THREE (3) lucky readers of this blog! The kit includes:

• The all-new Elmer’s X-TREME School Glue Stick
