Push for Pencils is a community-wide supply drive to benefit local kids in need. More than 90,000 St. Louis area children cannot afford the most basic school supplies.
KidSmart gives these students hope and the chance to succeed in school by providing them with free school supplies throughout the year. Last year, Push for Pencils collected nearly 500,000 supplies along with $70,000 for local school children in heed. 1st Financial hosts a two-week school supply drive in August to help families who are struggling to pay rent and other living expenses by donating new school supplies for their children.
