School Tools

Our School Tools program provides school supplies to 52 elementary schools in 16 South Texas school districts that have 95% of students from low-income households.  Our free store allows teachers at those schools to access the supplies once a month during the school year.  The teachers in turn distribute the supplies to the children whose families cannot provide them.  This program helps keep low-income children motivated in the learning environment and excited about classroom activities.  Not having adequate supplies can embarrass children and set them on a course of a dislike of school.  Our goal is to ensure these children have the tools they need to succeed early  the educational process.

Impact:  1,300 Teachers enrolled providing supplies for 32,500 students!
