Help Kids Make the Grade!

Support Our 2015 Goal of Distributing 100,000 Backpacks

YMCAs across the Greater Houston area are gearing up to provide school supplies for children in our communities so they can start school with the tools to be successful.

Help the YMCA make a difference. Donate a backpack filled with school supplies and change a life!


To make a backpack donation:

Purchase a new backpack for a child.

Buy school supplies, write a note of encouragement and put them in the backpack. List of recommended school supplies 

Bring the backpack to your local YMCA or a participating drop-off
location between July 15 and August 9, 2015.
