Spring Branch Education Foundation’s Project School Supplies strives to provide supplies to every economically disadvantaged student in SBISD


The Spring Branch Education Foundation (SBEF) has kicked off the 2022-2023 Project School Supplies, an initiative that provides school supplies to Spring Branch ISD students in need. 
This year, Project School Supplies has expanded to serve every economically disadvantaged student in the district. Since 2005, the foundation has been dedicated to equipping students with the necessary supplies to prosper in the classroom. 
The initiative served an estimated 20,000 students during the 2021-2022 academic year. 
“Project School Supplies has provided Ridgecrest students with much-needed supplies, especially during the hardships that the pandemic has brought,” said Ridgecrest Elementary principal Michelle Garcia. “This project makes a positive impact on the success of our students.” 
Approximately 59% of Spring Branch ISD’s students are considered economically disadvantaged. SBEF is committed to providing students with the supplies they need, from notebooks to backpacks. 
“Last year, Project School Supplies provided every student in Northbrook with a backpack filled with supplies,” said Dr. HP Hyder, Northbrook Middle principal. “They have been a lifesaver for our students, families, and teachers. We are grateful for their support.” 
SBEF encourages the community to help economically disadvantaged students and set them up for success.
“Due to the pandemic and the increased cost of school supplies, there is a greater need,” said Cece Thompson, SBEF executive director. “A lack of supplies can hinder our students’ learning journey. Through initiatives like this, we can help break that cycle .”
