School Bags

With your help, creating school bags is leveling our nation’s academic playing field. Join us today in preparing a child in the Greater Houston Area for tomorrow’s success! School bags are not just about paper, pens, or notebooks– it’s about giving the gift of opportunity in school and life that this special population of children may not otherwise receive. School Bags are handed out year round as children change schools, receive various home placements, or simply run out of supplies. The process to creating an age appropriate school bag is as easy as 1,2,3! Get started today by following this easy guide!
