Teachers Aid

School supplies for teachers in low-income schools

Kids need the right tools in order to succeed in school, but manycrayons cropped.jpg families can't afford the most basic school supplies, like pencils, crayons and notebooks.  Many compassionate teachers pay for school supplies from their own pockets so their students aren't at a disadvantage.

The Teachers Aid program provides supplies to teachers in schools that meet two critera: (1) 70% of students are on free or reduced-price lunch;  (2) participate in the Houston Food Bank's Backpack Buddy Program.  School supplies are distributed on posted Saturdays by reservation only (Please see calendar and "How To" below).

Teachers select from donated items based on their grade levels, curriculum needs and current inventory.  Teachers can "shop" once every three months by appointment only.

The program is an affiliate of the Kids in Need Foundation's Kids in Need National Network sponsored by Target.
