You can help students beyond the classroom
Members can help students by contacting the NEARI Children's Fund. It provides a safety net for struggling students of any age whose personal needs interfere with their ability to come to school ready to learn.
The NEARI Executive Committee established the Children's Fund in 1985 to help students who come to school without their basic needs met. Over the last 30-plus years, the Fund has poured more than $2 million into communities across the state, providing clothes, shoes, heat, groceries, eyeglasses, medication, special educational equipment and supplies, bedding, rental assistance, vocational uniforms, test and licensing fees, tutoring, summer school, and much more to countless students.
