Activity Description

SERVE at Home is a way for your family to spread kindness and help our community on your own, anytime, anywhere! We want to keep Houston volunteering all week long!

For this activity, you will work with your family at home to gather school supplies for Houston Food Bank's Teachers Aid program. Many children can’t afford the most basic school supplies, so teachers often pay for school supplies from their own pockets so their students have a more productive learning experience. The Teachers Aid program provides the supplies kids need to succeed.

You will need to provide the supplies for this activity. You can complete this activity on your own anytime during the month.

Activity Directions

Purchase some of the following items to deliver to Houston Food Bank. The most needed school supplies are:

  • Pencils (#2 and Colored Pencils)
  • Pens
  • Notebook Paper and Spiral Notebooks
  • Backpacks
  • Highlighters
  • Binders
  • Scissors
  • Markers
  • Crayons
  • Rulers
  • White Boards/Cork Boards
  • Dry Erase Markers
  • Folders
  • Paints and Paint Brushes
  • USB Flash Drives

You can purchase as many school supplies as your family is able to donate. We recommend a minimum of any combination of 12 school supply items (i.e. 1 package of pencils = 1 item).

When finished, you can drop the school supplies off at Houston Food Bank.

Drop-Off Address:  535 Portwall St, Houston, TX 77029

Drop-Off Instructions: Please call 713-223-3700 or check the Houston Food Bank website before you leave to drop off your donation as they may have varying summer hours. Their regular hours are Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
