Elmer’s is embarking on a new partnership to help children in need get essential school supplies this back-to-school season through the Kids In Need Foundation, a national, non-profit organization dedicated to providing free school supplies to economically disadvantaged school children and under-funded teachers.

For each “like” on the Elmer’s Facebook page through Sept. 1, the company will donate a product to the Foundation’s national network of free stores, where teachers from disadvantaged schools can “shop” for free for school supplies (up to 200,000 products for this campaign). Products to be donated include a variety of glues, foam board, project supplies and pencil sharpeners. If you already like the page, we’ll make a contribution on your behalf, but you can donate again by watching a video on the Elmer’s Kids In Need Facebook tab and sharing it with your friends and family.

As an extra incentive, I’d like to offer three readers a chance to win prize packs. The kit and prize packs will include:

  • The all-new Elmer’s X-TREME School Glue Stick
  • Small foam tri-fold
  • Project Popperz
  • Mini bi-fold foam
  • Disappearing purple glue sticks
  • Gel school glue sticks
  • School glue
  • School glue dual tip pen
