Program Overview Videos

We've created two videos you can share with parents either via email, on social media, or your website.

The 1-minute video gives an overview of how the program works along with the benefits of how parents save time and money with EPI school supply packs. The 10-second video is just a pack being filled with supplies and is a good option for adding motion to your social media posts.
