For the Children is pleased to announce the start of the 2015 summer fundraising campaign and School Supply Distribution drive. The Official campaign begins on July 15th with our media promotion in conjunction with KVUE and our scan coupon promotion in conjunction with HEB. Our summer fundraising campaign drive officially ends on September 6th, 2015.

We are delighted to enter this 26th year in collaboration with the community and our key sponsors in providing school supplies to needy children in grades pre-K through 4th around Central Texas school districts. This year we expect to impact the lives of approximately 64,402 school age children.

The need is great and with your support we can continue to make a difference in the lives of children within our community.
