“Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.” ~ Psalm 127:3

With Kits4Kids, we send you backpacks, you fill them with school supplies and donate to a local elementary school or family connection organization. It’s that easy!

Why Kits4Kids? Almost 12 million children in the United States, and 1.3 million in Canada, live in a family with income below the poverty line. In 2020, almost 29 million children relied on the US National School Lunch Program. Kits4Kids encourages Christadelphians in North America to provide tangible support for vulnerable children, helping to foster a more positive view of self by allowing them to “fit in” with their peer group by having access to basic school supplies. These efforts can also open up opportunities to share the Gospel message, such as extending invitations to youth days or public ecclesial social events.
