Please help prepare a homeless child for school this challenged academic year! We need your help to fill hundreds of School Backpacks with the required school supplies for the upcoming school year. DISD is asking for clear (see-through) pre-filled backpacks or donations for supplies. We will deliver the filled backpacks to Rainbow Days and to DISD’s Homeless Education.

Every donation will make a difference! Please donate financially or conduct a drive for needed supplies at your office or with your community group.

All supplies are needed by Friday, July 22
