Spirit of Summer Volunteer Event

Every year, we are able to give the children we serve a backpack, school supplies, and new uniforms. We provide bags to children to empower them with the tools necessary to have a great school year and ease family stressors during their recovery. We need your help to stuff backpacks and support children healing from sexual abuse.






Please join us for our annual Spirit of Summer Volunteer Event in July 2022. Dates are TBD.

School Supplies

Last year, we stuffed over 400 backpacks for the children we serve! We had over 100 community volunteers participate, including Spindletop Charities, Allied Power Group, Blue Water Shipping, Arnold Venture Interns, and the National Charity League. Thank you all for your support and hard work!


Spindletop Charities generously underwrote our 2021 Spirit of Summer Volunteer Event and had their Volunteer Army stuff backpacks. Spindletop Charities has sustainably funded our essential programs and child-friendly facility since 1997. They have made a tremendous impact on our community, and we are so grateful for their continued support of the children and families we serve.


Thank you, Spindletop!
