About The School Supply Project
History of the School Supply Project
The School Supply Project was organized in February of 1986 to provide supplies for students whose parents cannot afford to buy them.
In 2022 we provided supplies for more than 900 students in the Plano Independent School District (PISD) and in other area schools.
The School Supply Project is committed to the belief that a positive self-image is essential to the learning experience of the well educated child. To enhance that self-image, we provide school supplies to disadvantaged students in PISD. Through contributions of money and time from individuals and our partners we normally distribute these supplies to children identified as "in need" by the Assistance Center of Collin County (ACCC) and educational professionals.
How Are Recipients Identified?
Families may request supplies by contacting the Assistance Center of Collin County. PISD school personnel may also request supplies on behalf of students who need help.
What Supplies Are Included In The Backpacks?
Backpack contents varies by grade level. A complete list of contents is available on the at http://pisd.edu/schoolsupplies.
How Do The Students Receive The Supplies?
In 2023 packed backpacks may be picked up on Saturday, July 29, at
Resurrection Lutheran Church, 1919 Independence Pkwy, Plano, TX 75075 from 8 AM to 12 Noon.
How Is The Project Funded?
Donations of money and time are provided by individuals and our partner and sponsor organizations. Virtually all donations go to purchase supplies.
