Outreach / Donate

Each year many students in Houston, Texas go to school without adequate learning materials; these include tools for writing, drawing, coloring, etc. We are committed to closing the gaps of accomplishment and achievement between low income and higher income students. Thus, we have partnered with a local elementary school to assist them and other students in our community with school supplies for the upcoming school year.

Out of the 806 students who attended this school last year, 97.3% were categorized as “economically disadvantaged” and 76.8% were considered to be “at risk.” These children have proven to be bright, promising students. They have worked hard to achieve the status of “Recognized” by the Texas Education Agency in 2006, 2008, and 2009. We would like to support their continued success by ensuring that they are better prepared for the 2010-2011 school year.

We invite you to become a participant in this fundraising program by donating to this cause.
Every $25.00 donated provides the initial supply needs of one child. With your tax-deductable donation, together we can lay a fantastic foundation for these students.
