Through partnerships with major retailers, KINF is able to procure $30 worth
of school supplies for every dollar donated to their foundation. The
foundation has 29 Resources Centers located across the country where teachers
from designated low-income school districts with at least 70 percent of
students receiving free or reduced lunch through the federal free lunch
program can shop for their students. To date, KINF has distributed more than
$450 million in school supplies through these facilities, directly impacting
2.4 million students and 100,000 teachers annually.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with the Kids in Need Foundation," says
George Logue, president of Voyager/Sopris Learning. "The reality is that many
of the students we serve are from low-income households and do not have the
means to obtain even the most basic school supplies. Academic achievement is
enhanced by students coming to school well prepared, and ready to learn with
the right materials. We stand behind the outstanding efforts of this
foundation and are pleased to join in this cause."

The Kids In Need Foundation is a national 501(c)(3) charitable organization
with the mission of ensuring that every child is prepared to learn and succeed
by providing free school supplies nationally to students most in need. Kids In
Need has received Charity Navigator's highest four-star rating for four
consecutive years, indicating that it operates in a fiscally responsible way
and outperforms most other charities in America and is a Gold-level GuideStar
Exchange participant, demonstrating its commitment to transparency.

"With more than 16 million children living below the poverty line in the
United States, the need is immediate for school supplies," said Dave Smith,
executive director of the Kids In Need Foundation. "This donation will go a
long way to help us directly fulfill our mission of getting school supplies to
the students and teachers who need them the most. We are very thankful to
Voyager/Sopris Learning for this partnership."
