August is here, and for students in Texas, that means it’s time for back to school preparations. Over the past few weeks, SA YES, in partnership with attorney Thomas J. Henry, has been busy ramping up their free school supplies distributions for the 2021-2022 school year. This series of in-person school supply distributions is the first since the COVID-19 pandemic, when many students were remote learning. During the month of August, SA YES distributed school supplies to 50,000 Title 1 elementary schools and youth-focused organizations throughout south Texas including districts in San Antonio, Austin and Corpus Christi.

SA YES continues to develop innovative ways to raise funds to support students throughout South Texas. Since our inception in 1998, SA YES has distributed 500,000 school supply kits. By providing each student with their own school supply kit, the organization hopes the act serves as a reminder that each student is important to our community and that they are equipped with the resources they need to learn and grow.
