The SA YES Foundation was established 18 years ago to create a better future for youth in San Antonio and South Texas. Over the years, $3 Million has been put back into our communities through school supply distribution, scholarships for high school students and grants for schools and non-profits.
Our mission is to support low-income students and community groups in San Antonio through educational outreach of free school supplies and technology grants.
SCHOOL SUPPLY DISTRIBUTION
Each year SA YES selects numerous, low-income elementary schools in San Antonio and South Texas and supplies every student in those schools with a free packet of School supplies. Since 1998, SA YES has provided over 200,000 deserving students with free school supplies. Over 29,000 students will receive free school supplies from SA YES this year. The SA YES Foundation visits each elementary school and personally hands every child an individual packet of supplies.
The SA YES Foundation has also been able to establish state of the art computer centers at three of the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio, provide the Children’s Bereavement Center with much need books for their library and supplied Smart Board computers to David Robinson’s Carver Academy.
