From now through July 21st, 2021, ECR is teaming up with Foundation Communities again this year to collect school supply donations for children across Central Texas. Foundation Communities is a local, homegrown nonprofit helping families succeed through affordable housing and wraparound services. Their annual Back to School Drive supports the kids who attend free, onsite after-school programs right where they live. As schools prepare to reopen their doors and send kids back to school in person, they need your help to set students up for success in the 2021-22 school year.
In addition to donating online, a drop-box for supplies can be found via the following Austin properties participating in the back-to-school drive: 823 Congress, Norwood Tower, Amber Oaks, 8000 Centre Park, and 4201 Marathon.
Additionally, ECR is teaming up with CAM this year to collect school supply donations for children in San Antonio. CAM helps the underserved population in San Antonio. They provide everything from rent assistance to food to clothing and back-to-school supplies. With extra unemployment benefits ending, CAM believes they will receive even more requests for school supplies this year.
