“We focus on schools where a minimum of 60% of the school enrollment needs either a free or reduced-price lunch.” 

Rubenstein partners with local organizations to provide the necessary school supplies. 

Rubenstein's heart is to ease the burdens teachers often take home from school. He says, “Just think about being in that situation yourself. And you’ve got 20 students in your classroom that don’t have the things that they need and they’re looking to you to solve it.”

Teachers are invited to come browse for items they need for their classrooms, along with essential resources for their students. Rubenstein shares, “There’s just so many students that don’t have the things that they need to learn.”
