Back to School Mission provides back packs and all the school supplies on the list for the grade the child is in. These supplies are taken to the school and are in the students room the day school starts.
In 2020, we supplied backpacks and school supplies to 516 students. We also provided school supplies to students participating in virtual learning due to COVID.
The Medical Assistance Program is funded by Hunt Memorial Hospital District. Most any medical expense, within reason, not paid by Medicaid can by paid for by this program providing the family meets our requirements. This includes gasoline to get a child to a medical facility.
Reading Roundup is a program to provide elementary students with a book to keep. The student chooses a book, a volunteer will read to them and the student gets to take the book home.
Students enjoyed viewing a Quinlan ISD police cruiser while visiting with an officer and receiving a Junior Office Police badge.
We purchased a Book Vending Machine for DC Cannon Elementary!!
This machine does not take money, it takes tokens. Teachers will give students tokens for good behavior, attendance, improvement in studies, etc. Books will be given as a reward! The student will get to keep the book!
We are raising funds to purchase books. We hope to be able to give each of the 750+ students 4 books per school year!!
So navigating the world of foster care can be a tough road. In order to help both the child and the foster parent in that first night, we’re partnering with community members to provide them with a first night bag upon removal by CPS.
Clothe the Kids is a program designed to help QISD families in need with school clothing for their children. Students are nominated by their teachers, approved by the counselors and then the applications are sent to us. We contact the family and make arrangements to take the family shopping.
Emergency Response Program is partially funded by United Way of Hunt County and it covers most any expense that falls through the cracks of our other programs.
What we do for these children is fundamental. If they have the school supplies and clothing they need, they will do better in school and are more apt to finish high school.
To help meet the needs of underprivileged children.
