Backpack and School Supplies Giveaway in Katy TX.

Backpack and School Supplies Giveaway in Katy TX.

The EmPowerment Center and Destiny Bridge Builders are sponsoring a Back to School Backpack and school supplies giveaway on Saturday August 13, 2016. The first 250 children ages 5 -11 years old with parents will obtain the free of charge backpacks with school supplies.


The EmPowerment Center is a non-denominational church and Destiny Bridges appears to be run by the wife of the pastor at EmPowerment Center. I do not know anything else about these organizations. If your child is in need of a backpack and school supplies this free of charge giveaway maybe an excellent means for your family to obtain needed assistance.


I am always in favor of helping folks who really need assistance and especially for children who need school supplies and a backpack but their family cannot afford to buy these required and needed items.  There are numerous families in the Katy and surrounding areas who do need help.


The giveaway will be held at the EmPowerment campus located at 20910 Park Row Blvd. Katy TX. 77449. Additional information is available by calling 281-578-3535.

Bob, we usually have a school bus on the parking lot of Walmart where we collect school supplies... Great way to help those who need school supplies.

I'm hearing about a lot of school supply drives. I think this is a great cause to support, and I will be donating supplies very soon.

Thank you all for your comments. Getting school supplies to children whose families have limited resources is important as is making sure they have some new clothes to wear on the first day.

Bob, this is such a great program to get behind and it is expensive for a family of limited means to supply their children with the required school supplies.  We support our church giving every summer to sponsor a similar program at two nearby elementary schools.
