Students at dozens of San Antonio elementary schools will get free supplies thanks to a local partnership between the nonprofit, Texas Yes, and attorney Thomas J. Henry.
The “Box of Dreams” program is having distribution events this week for students in kindergarten through fifth grade at Title 1 elementary schools.
A spokesperson said volunteers will drop off the school supply kits at campuses in Harlandale, Edgewood, South San and San Antonio independent school districts.
The items will supply about 27,000 students this year.
“Each year, TEXAS YES selects numerous Title 1 elementary schools across Texas and supplies every student (Kindergarten through 5th grade) with a free school supply kit,” a news release states. “TEXAS YES understands the crucial need for school supplies, especially with rising inflation prices.”
The supply kits include colored pencils, Crayons, notebook paper, a spiral notebook, an eraser, a glue stick, folders with pockets, folders with pockets and brads, a ruler, pencils, ballpoint pens, and a box of tissues.
