Rosanne Crump – Texas Kids Read – School Supplies Post COVID-19

I am inspired by other organizations in Austin who provide supplies for other schools and I felt Texas Kids Read should work to help the students and teachers in the schools we work with beyond the books we give them during the school year. After watching the news about people being laid off from jobs they cannot do from home, I felt the hardest hit would be the parents of students who attend the Title 1 elementary schools we serve as well as the teachers there.

Texas Kids Read – School Supplies Post COVID-19 seeks to provide the needed supplies when school starts up for the 2020-2021 year to help ease the financial burden of the parents & teachers for all 1,750 students at these four schools. These supplies include crayons, pink erasers, facial tissues, hand sanitizers, notebooks, folders, loose leaf notebook paper, backpacks, and much more.

This seed grant will go towards assisting the teachers, parents and most of all the students.
