Back to School Drive

We're excited to bring back our yearly Back to School drive! Our goal is to serve close to 500 families in the Houston area. Our Back to School drive will provide a backpack full of school supplies to each child that we serve.

We understand it has not been easy for our local schools to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, but our approach to solving students’ most pressing needs has not changed. According to Pew Research Center, in 2019 nearly 14% of children under age 18, or 10.5 million children were living in poverty.  With this data, we can see the imperative of why school readiness is a vital area to address.

 

At retail prices, a backpack with school supplies can range from $70 (Elementary) to $100 (Middle/High School) for students. For families living under the federal poverty line, oftentimes there are no household funds remaining for books and school supplies -- even for the basics such as pencils and paper. More than 34% of Houston children arrive on the first day of school without the supplies needed to learn for the year. As a result, statistics show when needed supplies are not available in the home, many times schoolwork goes undone. As students begin to return to safe, in-person learning this fall, we want to ensure all children have what they need to thrive in the classroom. The success of this year’s drive depends on your support!
