School Supply Drive for Grandparents Raising Grandkids.

Bexar County has hundreds of grandparents who are raising their grandchildren as a preventative to them entering the state foster system. Because they are not in the state system, they do not receive support services or financial assistance in any way. We want to help these grandparents continue to care for their kids and meet their needs. Many of these grandparents are raising 4 plus kids, they are tired, they don't have extra funds to cover all the expenses that come with school age kids!

The San Antonio Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Coalition are on the frontlines of preventing hundreds of children from entering the formal foster care system. These Grandparents willingness to step in and raise their grandkids is a huge sacrifice that often comes with little or no support from family and social services. We have the opportunity to give encouragement to these families by lightening the burden of getting ready for back to school!

One small way we can help is with Back to School Supplies. We have identified over fifty families that are in the most need of support. Grace Point will host an event for these families on August 19th to recreate the shopping experience we all loved as children. WE NEED YOUR HELP. Please consider donating the following school supplies. 

  • Backpacks
  • Classic Markers   
  • 24ct Crayons
  • Scissors
  • Elmers Glue
  • Glue Sticks
  • Tissue Boxes
  • Wipes
  • Box of Pencils
  • Wide ruled spiral notebooks
  • Wide ruled notebook paper
  • $10 Walmart Gift Cards
You can leave new donations of these basic school supplies in the marked bins located in the foyer at both campuses July 29 through August 19. 

We also need volunteers to help with set up and during the event. Our goal is for each family to have a personal shopper to help them as they shop.
