55.97% of HEB ISD students come from homes that are economically disadvantaged. Operation Back 2 School provides these students with a new backpack and school supplies while connecting their parents with resources that help them all year long.
You can help a student start the year off right for just $35. You can also “adopt” a whole classroom for $700.

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.
(Registration will open in June 2020)
$35 provides school supplies and a backpack to a student who is economically disadvantaged. A donation of $700 provides for an entire classroom.
Social service agencies and community partners are invited to join us each year for Operation Back 2 School by hosting a table at the Social Service Fair. This important component of the event provides an opportunity forfamilies to connect with free or low-cost resources to assist them year-round. If your church, social service, business, or organization would like to be a part of the social service fair, please submit a Vendor Application for approval. If you would like to learn more about sponsorship opportunities, please contact our team at email@example.com
The recipient children have been identified and pre-registered in partnership with HEB ISD. Application instructions are sent home with qualifying children in early April. We purchase the school supplies in bulk to maximize funds. Each “kit” is built to specifications provided by our partners in HEB ISD.
