THE WOODLANDS, TX (Thursday, September 4, 2019) — With the start of the 2019–2020 school year, Interfaith of The Woodlands served a total of over 2,300 local students as part of their 35th annual Kits 4 Kidz school supplies assistance program. In addition to the required school supply kits, children also received a new backpack and a voucher for a back-to-school outfit to use at the Interfaith Hand Me Up Shop. The efforts of Interfaith and its donors ensure that every child has the necessary tools for a successful school year.
Interfaith provided school supplies to students attending 42 local schools ranging from pre-k to high school! “School supply packs can be very expensive, I don’t know what I would have done for my kids if it wasn’t for Interfaith’s school supply program,” an Interfaith Client shared with one of Interfaith’s Program Coordinators in the Family Services department.
Interfaith’s President and CEO, Missy Herndon, says she was honored to serve these children. “Because of the generosity of our community through school supply and monetary donations, local children will be able to start school on the same level as their peers,” she says. “The smiles on the children’s faces say it all. Once again, our community stepped up to help their neighbors in need. We are very thankful for the many Interfaith volunteers and donors who played an integral role in the success of this program.”
