Since opening in 2002, KidSmart has distributed almost $60 million in school supplies to 150,000 + economically disadvantaged children in our community. KidSmart empowers over 72,000 students in need to succeed in school by providing them with free school supplies. KidSmart carries out its mission by operating the only Free Store in Missouri for teachers to come “shop” at once a month for supplies for their students. The Free Store is filled with supplies donated by individuals, businesses and groups across the St. Louis area. KidSmart has also launched a mobile distribution program called KidSmart On The Go! This program allows for KidSmart to take much needed basic supplies directly into the classrooms and to the students that need it the most.

Together, with your help, we will truly make a difference in the lives of local kids in need and give them the chance for a successful start to the school year.
