Retail Pick-up Program

Pick up free classroom supplies from a local retail partner.


Kids In Need Foundation (KINF) and Every Teacher, Every Day (ETED) are committed to providing all the resources you need inside and outside of the classroom to be at your very best. Classroom resources and supplies are available through KINF to teachers at schools with a student enrollment of 50% or more participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP).

Retail Pick-up Program

ETED blog

KINF’s pick-up programs, driven by our generous partners, offer an opportunity for teachers in underserved schools to receive free items for their classrooms. As our retailers transition seasonal items and make shifts in inventory, those products are set aside to be donated to local, under-resourced schools.

Current Retail Pick-Up Partners:


If we are unable to match you and your school with a retail pick-up program, we encourage you to still submit your information for future opportunities. 

Sometimes we have other product donation opportunities with donors and are looking to place products and supplies nationwide directly with schools. Having your information in our records will help us regularly communicate new opportunities to you when they become available.

If you have any questions, contact us! We look forward to continuing to inspire learning and creativity in your classrooms!

Here are a few key details:

  • We offer fun, seasonal decor items, arts and crafts supplies, activities, incentives, and wearables that inspire creative learning for your students, and much, much more!
  • You will be required to submit both an online pick-up report and provide the store with a signed receipt for each pick-up. The online form is very short and takes less than a minute of your time.
  • Pick-up dates generally occur monthly, with the exception of June and July for summer break.
