The cost of basic school supplies can present a financial burden to many families in the community. The Prepare for Success school supply drive helps families eliminate that cost and move one step closer to eliminating the achievement gap. PFS was launched in 2002 and grew into a countywide partnership to serve as many Howard County students in need as possible.
