Classroom Ready

Thank you to our Classroom Ready Donors!

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

Who we serve?  We serve students with a financial need in the Fort Mill School District.  In the summer months, we work with individual families. During the school year, we work directly with FMSD guidance counselors to meet student needs.

When are we open? ALL YEAR ROUND! We work with volunteers in our supply room and with supply drive hosts throughout the community.  During our distribution weekend in late summer, we distribute more than 500 backpacks to Fort Mill students in need. Throughout the school year, we process supply requests 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.  Our big red donation bin is located near our entrance on the back side of the building and is available 24/7.  For larger donation drop-offs, we are open by appointment.

All of it is distributed to Fort Mill families at the end of the summer, but the prep work begins now.
