Our annual Backpacks Project changed a little this year with Chad Spencer obtaining fully loaded backpacks, eliminating our need to fill them ourselves.  Plus he was able to grow it by an additional 360 packs! Disbursing so many took lots of volunteers. Thanks to all who came out to the various locations to help us sort and deliver and disburse the hundreds of backpacks at locations around town.   They include:   Jane Richardson, Potu Rao, Brennan Reilly, Kimberly Phipps-Nichol, Janice Stooksberry, Jack Hardin, Joe Rivers, Margarita Hernandez, Frank Parrilla and Chad Spencer.
Below see our collaboration with Houston Area Urban League's back-to-school event.
Margarita and Frank assist Spanish speaking clients at Emergency Aid Coalition event, while Cecile, Serena and AJ help distribute.
Thanks to ALL who came out to help students arrive to school prepared.
