Back to Basics Project

Back to School Essentials – School Supply Kits

Each year, SA YES selects numerous Title 1 elementary schools in San Antonio and supplies every student (Kindergarten through 5th grade) with a free school supply kit. Since 1998, SA YES staff members along with dedicated volunteers, have personally distributed over 425,000 school supply kits to students in South Texas. 

The school supply kits include the following items: colored pencils, crayons, notebook paper, erasers, glue, folders, pencils, a ruler, ballpoint pens and a box of tissues. In 2019, SA YES provided school supply kits to 22,000 students in San Antonio, Texas. We look forward to the 2020 school year!
