Give today to the Write from the Start School Supply Drive and Dick Hannah Dealerships will match your donation, up to $10,000! Approximately 51% of VPS families have incomes below the federal poverty guidelines, with some schools as high as 85%. For many families, the added burden of purchasing school supplies could translate into falling behind on rent and utilities or reducing an already minimal food budget. You can help the nearly 11,000 Vancouver Public School students who live in poverty within all 37 VPS schools & programs start the school year with the supplies they need to be successful.
