It only takes one person to make a difference.
At my last school we had a closet at our school stocked and supplied by a local church and business partners. When a new student arrived with no supplies. We could grab a backpack and load it with crayons, pencils, notebooks, paper, etc. None of this would have been possible without the kind people who spent their personal money to stock that closet.
You can start by collecting crayons this August when the stores have them on sale for 5 cents. Ask your friends, family, a church group, a neighborhood association, a woman's club, the people you know are endless and this is a very easy project for a group. Then, next thing you know, you'll be getting pencils, notebook paper, markets, etc.
