Did you know that 55% of HEB ISD students come from homes that are economically disadvantaged? The goal of Operation Back 2 School is to supply these students with a new backpack, school supplies and provide their parents with resources to help all year long.
You can help a student start the year off right for just $30 or help a whole classroom full of kids for $600.
Campus West, 209 N. Industrial Blvd, Bedford
9am – 4pm
We need approximately 1,000 volunteers to be able to serve the families. It is an amazing experience to be able to hand a child their favorite color backpack and see their eyes light up! Check out this description of each volunteer role if you want to know more.
$30 provides school supplies and a backpack to a student who is economically disadvantaged. A donation of $120 provides for 4 students.
If your church, social service, business, organization or other entity would like to be a part of the social services fair submit the form above. Please keep in mind these exhibits are targeted towards those who are struggling financially, so please only free or low cost services.
The recipient children have been identified and pre-registered through the HEB ISD Office of School Improvement. Application instructions are sent home with qualifying children in early April. We purchase the school supplies in bulk to maximize funds. Each “kit” contains the supplies approved by the school district.
