our purpose

Project Pencils is a Wright County 501(c)(3) organization that is dedicated to providing school supplies for students in need.

Families contact us with their needs and we reach out to our volunteers to "adopt" students' specific supply lists. Through the generosity of donors and volunteers who purchase supplies, we have helped thousands of students (669 in 2023 alone).

THANK YOU to everyone who has helped Project Pencils over the years!
