On Wednesday, August 21, SA YES made a special school supply distribution at Palo Alto Elementary school. We were honored to be joined by members of the Thomas J. Henry Family including Maya Henry, Azteca Henry and Teresa Crawford as well as celebrity recording artist and San Antonio native, Austin Mahone who helped distribute school supplies to the school’s students.

With the support of Thomas J Henry and family, along with other local sponsors, we provided school supply kits which included pencils, notebook paper, crayons, a ruler and other school supplies. After receiving their school supplies, Palo Alto students enjoyed a private surprise acoustic performance by Mahone who performed two songs. The show was a hit!

For the 2018 school year, SA YES will provide 27,000 local kindergarten through fifth-grade students with free school supplies through the Back to Basics Project, preparing them to start the school year off right. The Back to Basics Project is made possible through the gracious partnership of local sponsors, Thomas J. Henry, Methodist Healthcare, Security Service Federal Credit Union, Fiesta Texas, Ancira Auto Group, Sinclair Broadcast Group and IHOP.

Again, a big thank you to the Thomas J. Henry Family and Austin Mahone for joining us in giving back!
