The CAC Prepares Kids for a Healthy School Year….
Back to School 2012 was a huge success! The CAC would like to once again thank ConocoPhillips for underwriting our annual Back to School Program allowing us to provide backpacks, school supplies and school uniforms to children receiving services. This year The CAC provided backpacks and school supplies to 622 children. School uniforms were provided to 292 children. It is because of these donations nearly 700 children will return to school with all the supplies necessary to get the year off to a fantastic start.
We would also like to thank SYSCO Corporation for their wonderful contributions to our Back to School Party. The children and their families loved the pizza served at the party and were grateful to leave with bags of FRESH produce. Other activities at this year’s party included free immunizations from Blue Cross/Blue Shield Care Van, presentations by VeggiePals, Payless SHOESOURCE gift cards donated by the National Shoe Bank Department of Grand Temple Daughters of Elks, free passes to the Children’s Museum of Houston, visits with our furry and feathered friends from Caring Critters, raffles and school supplies donated by Berryhill Baja Grill, child I.D. kits provided by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Crime Prevention Unit and dental care instruction and supplies donated by Greater Houston Dental Society.
All of this would not be possible without our dedicated staff and committed volunteers. Hats off to each of you for your hard work!!!
