SUPPLIES! IT’S SCHOOL TIME!

There’s a new online school-supply company for parents of children in Springfield elementary schools that’s giving back to the community with every purchase.

The company, called American Student Supply, sells name-brand materials that are grade-specific, called MyPacks, which come in a nifty nylon drawstring bag. The bag is child-safe, of course. MyPacks are not available for high school students.

In the spirit of giving, the MyPack Gives Back Mission provides free MyPack school supplies to homeless and underprivileged school-aged children with every MyPack purchase. The company contacts schools to provide free supplies to students in need.

Created by Fitch De-Noyer, a Springfield native and mother of five children, the company’s mission is to take the stress out of shopping for the right size and brand of school supplies.

De-Noyer chose to bring her business “back home” to Springfield after a discussion with a Springfield friend, who told De-Noyer he went to school every year without the required materials. The company had a large response after opening in the St. Louis area and plans to continue growing in central Illinois.
