Classroom Ready!


2018-2019 Classroom Ready

Who are we? Classroom Ready is a program under the Foundation for Fort Mill Schools, run by community volunteers and funded by grants and donations from our supportive community. Classroom Ready provides free school supplies to students in need.

Who we serve?  We serve every school in the Fort Mill School District.  In the summer months, we work with individual families, SON Ministry and The Fort Mill Care Center to identify needs prior to school starting.  During the school year, we work directly with FMSD Guidance Counselors to meet student needs.

When are we open? ALL YEAR ROUND! In the summer months, we work with volunteers in our supply room as well as with supply drive hosts throughout the community.  During the month of August, we distribute backpacks and invite school counselor to shop for students in their schools. Throughout the school year, we process orders from guidance counselors and maintain the supply room with the help of volunteers.

Where are we located?  The Susan McCrae Moore Supply Room is located at 120 East Elliott Street.  We are open by appointment only.

  • An organization is helping hundreds of children in need. Classroom Ready collects school supply donations for underprivileged children. All of it is distributed to Fort Mill families at the end of the summer, but the prep work begins now.
