School is out for the summer and this gives Katy parents an opportunity to involve their students in local ways to give back. Here are two local nonprofits that are offering opportunities for Katy families to give back and support local students.
Red Apple School Supply Program
Katy Christian Ministries is once again taking donations for their Red Apple School Supply program.
“As more and more children head back to the classroom, it’s paramount that we provide them with the tools necessary to succeed in the classroom,” says KMC Social Services Director, Vickie Bernal. “After a year away for many students, adjusting back to a classroom setting may be difficult, but if they are given the instruments to flourish, then we believe they will.”
While registration for those who need assistance has closed, the locally based nonprofit is actively seeking donations to support families in need. The donations will be distributed in August before school starts.
All donations directly benefit Katy ISD families for the 2021-2022 school year.
$35 gives supplies to 1 student
$175 for 5 students
$350 for 10 students
$875 supplies 25 students with the supplies they need

KCM’s goal is to raise $35,000 in total to equip local area children with the tools necessary to be successful for the school year ahead.
