Who are we?

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.

We Are SHS.

Our Mission

Our nation's students deserve a level playing field


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.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela
