pencils & dreams

how it works

At Biz Markie's Just a Friend Foundation, we believe that every child deserves a quality education and the tools to succeed. The "Pencils and Dreams" school supply drive is our initiative to provide essential school supplies to students in need, ensuring they have the resources necessary for a successful academic journey.

Join us in making a difference! Throughout the summer, we collect donations of new school supplies, including pencils, notebooks, backpacks, art materials, and more. These supplies are then distributed to schools and students who lack the resources to purchase them.
