For some families, the start of a new school year is a difficult one. Not everyone can afford to buy their child the necessary school supplies needed for the first day of class. That is why United Way of the Coastal Bend teamed up with KRIS Communications, HEB and Port Corpus Christi, so that thousands of children in our community would have the tools they need to succeed in school.
This year was was another great year! We received over $44,000 in donations, which meant that 7,390 students, in 36 school districts, received supplies to start the school year off right. Thank you to all of the sponsors, corporations and people that donated to Operation SOS and helped children in need!
