We're gearing up for our annual Back-To-School Project

We're kicking-off the summer season by gearing up for our annual Back-To-School Project. Each year, more than 45 community corporations and organizations collect and donate school supplies, giving our youngest clients the opportunity to choose their own brand new supplies and backpacks, just like all the other kids.
These are children who have experienced sexual abuse and exploitation, domestic violence and/or were witnesses to such crimes. Last year, we distributed nearly 1,100 new backpacks and school supplies.
Every year, the Back-to-School Project is made possible thanks to our supporters who collect loads of supplies and backpacks, our wonderful volunteers who spend countless hours sorting and packing the supplies and our dedicated back-to-school committee and staff who help coordinate the project.
For information about donations, contact Pam Hobbs at 713-528-6798, ext. 2255 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
