Austin YES Goes Back to Basics for 2019 School Supply Distribution


Our Back to Basics Project has officially ended for the 2019-2020 school year! Over the month of August, Austin YES visited 10 elementary schools in Del Valle ISD and Austin ISD to personally distribute free school supply kits to kindergarten through 5th grade students. In total, 5,500 school supply kits were distributed this year! 

As the saying goes, “it takes a village,” and we are incredibly thankful and humbled to work with the best sponsors and volunteers that make our mission possible. Whether you contributed to the Back to Basics Project by donating funds or your time, your generosity and support for students in our community is one we value greatly. 

Our 2019 sponsors include: 

  • Thomas J. Henry
  • Sinclair Broadcast Group
  • Six Flags Fiesta Texas
  • Xerox
