SHS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve educational equity. This is accomplished primarily through the reallocation of supplies and furnishings from affluent educational institutions and businesses to educational institutions in low-income and disadvantaged areas. SHS also seeks to provide financial support to schools in need.
The primary focus of Students Helping Students is to help bridge the education inequality gap that has been and still is plaguing our school systems today. Our belief is that without the appropriate amount of resources for each teacher and student of every school, a meaningful educational experience is simply not possible. Through our various programs, we hope to bring relief to as many schools as possible by recycling gently-used supplies and also providing new resources for schools that are in need.

Students Helping Students enables schools to donate supplies to students who need them. As a teacher, I am happy to support this valuable educational service!
Radnor Township School District is pleased to partner with the Students Helping Students organization to make good use of books and other curriculum materials and equipment after our use of these items has run its course. It is good to know that our taxpayer dollars are not ending up in the landfill but rather helping students in other areas of the state and nation continue their very valuable education.
As a librarian, I understand the importance of getting books into children’s hands. I have been a very enthusiastic supporter of the Students Helping Students program to provide books and other materials for students who need them. We are so proud of our affiliation with this effort.
The Book Give-Away was an awesome event! The teachers, community members, and students enjoyed being able to select class and personal reading materials. Students recommended to their teachers which books to add to their classroom libraries, and teachers, thrilled to encourage reading, happily obliged. We need more events like this for our community! Quality Education Academy is always happy to host the Book Give-Away.
Students Helping Students has provided fantastic resources to our school. With budget restraints, their gifts of books to our media center have been invaluable.
“It has been a great experience and a joy to work with Students Helping Students. It was so pleasing to see and hear the expressions of the instructors and administrators, while looking through and making selections from the materials that were being given away, especially with economic conditions and budget cuts such as they are. The supplemental books and materials seemed to be received with a lot of enthusiasm by all who came. Thank you, Bill, for allowing me to help with and participate in what have proven to be very successful Book Fairs in the various schools we have taken this to in the Winston-Salem Forsyth County system.”
