School is in session!
Getting ready for school can be stressful for all students, but for 15 million children in the US living in extreme poverty or those that are experiencing homelessness not having access to the school supplies needed for success in school can be very difficult.
HomeAid Austin, through the HomeAid Essentials Community Outreach program, addressed this issue this summer by partnering with Lennar on a backpack drive for Del Valle ISD. Lennar raised enough funds to provide 423 backpacks filled with school supplies for children in need.
The faculty and staff at Del Valle were overwhelmed with generosity and were touched to see Lennar give back to their community with such compassion. Thank you, Lennar, for making a difference!
