Education Expo was founded in 2014 by @K_DougDE while attending college at the University of South Carolina – Upstate in Spartanburg, South Carolina. The intentions in the beginning were to provide college students with an affordable option of purchasing textbooks for class in which the first campaign was online based where we collaborated with Amazon and were able to provide textbook purchases online at half the cost. Since then, the non-profit has grown into an annual back to school supply drive resource where we provide free school supplies to local area students to help them have the tools they need to further their education.

For our numerous back to school drives, we are often in need of volunteers to help us with passing out supplies on drive days, entertaining children at each drive with various educational activities for them to take part in, along with helping towards providing more information for parents and school administrators on our non-profit’s background. More information will be released soon on volunteer opportunities coming up for this summer! We thank our previous volunteers for all of their hard work and dedication put into building our non-profit from the ground up!
