YMCAs across the Greater Houston area are gearing up to provide school supplies for children in our communities. The children you help through this initiative will be filled with hope, joy and excitement as they start the school year. Your investment will provide these children with the opportunity to start school with the tools to be successful.

Your investment provides children the opportunity to return to learning with the tools to be successful.

The health and safety of our community is at the forefront. With that, we are focused on no-touch or low-touch interactions and are shifting YMCA Operation Backpack 2020 to an online donation drive. Funds raised will be used to purchase packaged school supplies and backpacks that will be distributed to children in need.
