Set for Success

Help us get our students Set for Success! We're teaming up with community partners Horace Mann, Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, Capitol Radio Group and WICS ABC Newschannel 20, to provide at least 1,000 individual prepackaged school supply sets for our students, and we're asking for individual contributions in any amount. Give $5, $10, or $23 (which funds an entire set) to help us get our students started off on the right foot for the new school year. 

The sets will be distributed proportionately to our elementary schools. Due to COVID-19, we will not  have an in-person give away this year. These prepackaged sets provide an efficient way to serve students during a time when we can't gather in large groups.

How to Give

Donating is easy and can be done online by going here www.schoolpay.com/link/setforsuccess. For every five sets funded, Horace Mann will donate a set, up to $5,000, to make sure children in need in Springfield are ready to learn. And the first 250 donors will receive two tickets to Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum.

What's in a set?

The invidvidually packaged sets will contain:

24 Pencils
2 Large Erasers
4 Glue Sticks
24 Count Crayola Crayons
Washable Markers
4 Dry erase markers (black)
Colored pencils
Pencil sharpener
Watercolor set
Two pocket folders - Blue, Red, Yellow, Green, Orange
