Spring Branch Education Foundation School Supply Project underway


Published


While many are looking forward to the end of the school year and a summer off, the Spring Branch Education Foundation is ramping up its annual School Supply Project.

“We want to assure that every student in every Spring Branch ISD Title I school receives the important resources they need to be successful,” the SBEF reported in a news release. “You can help by donating to the SBEF School Supply Project.”


Title I schools have at least 35% or more free or reduced lunch to qualify for the status. Title I is a federally funded program. A school gets Title I funds from the federal government to spend on their students to help maximize their success.

There are currently 19 elementary and six middle schools listed as Title I schools.

“Did you know that 59% of our students are economically disadvantaged? This project provides them with the right tools to foster success,” the SBEF reported. “We want all students to confidently walk into their classrooms on the first day of school with the tools they need for a successful year.”


As part of the drive, the SBEF is asking for donations, pointing out that:

$40 will provide supplies for 5 students.

$80 will provide supplies for 10 students.

$160 will provide supplies for 20 students.

Go to https://sbef.ejoinme.org/sbefschoolsupply to donate online or mail a check to: Spring Branch Education Foundation, 955 Campbell Road, Suite 206, Houston, TX 77024.

The SBEF School Supply Project is a nine-year effort which allows thousands of economically disadvantaged Spring Branch ISD students to receive everything from crayons to rulers to binders. Supplies that would normally cost $35-40 are possible for as little as $8 thanks to on-going relationships with national wholesale vendors.
