THE HEART BEHIND "SANTA"

School Supply Santa started in 2007 during a conversation with a local elementary school
teacher. It was discovered that there were many children, of all ages, who lacked the proper
school supplies at the start of the year which were needed for growth and learning.

 

The founder of School Supply Santa, Denise Kooiker, had a determined purpose and passion to
help children in the local West Michigan communities.
School Supply Santa passionately lives out its mission of “investing in students to bring joy and
empower success through the gift of school supplies”.

 

Our prayer for each of these children being served is for them to know they are cared for, loved 

and not forgotten.
