Our School Tools program provides school supplies to 47 elementary schools in 18 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: Over 8500 children are provided school supplies on a monthly basis.
