To improve the educational success of the disadvantaged children in our community by providing
needed school supplies, building their self-esteem and improving their
Project Back to School is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides FREE school supply kits and backpacks for economically disadvantaged students in Wichita Falls, Texas.
Currently, there are over
9,000 disadvantaged children in Wichita Falls. We are the only large-scale community program working with school districts in Wichita Falls to help these children prepare for school.
Every August, we host a one-day event for students in Head Start through 12th grade. At the Project Back to School Roundup, all children will receive valuable information on education and community services, immunizations, health screenings and more. Qualifying children will also receive free school supply kits and backpacks. We invite you to watch a short video about the Roundup.
Each year, we are able to equip 5,000 - 6,000 children for academic success, thanks to our partners and generous donors.
Help us provide 6,000 children in August 2014 with a simple yet valuable resource - the school supplies they need to succeed in school. Donate online or mail your gift today to:

Wichita Falls, TX
We are completely funded by private donations and
in-kind contributions and accept donations year-round.
"Project Back to School makes a notable difference in the lives of our most vulnerable children, individuals who may come to school with more baggage than they can fit in their new backpacks. Every child, though, deserves to start the school year on a level playing field, where having a pencil and piece of paper is the least of their worries.
These children may never know the names and faces of the generous donors who make Project Back to School so successful. They will know, though, that someone wanted to give them a chance."
