Operation Supply Our Students

Operation SOS
Made possible thanks to a partnership between

United Way of the Coastal Bend, KRIS 6 News, and H-E-B

Each year, United Way of the Coastal Bend partners with H-E-B and KRIS Communications for Operation Supply Our Students (SOS) - a community-wide fundraiser and school supply drive that provides basic school supplies to Coastal Bend children in need. More than 55,600 students enrolled throughout the 10 Coastal Bend counties we serve lack basic supplies to start the school year. We believe every child deserves a quality education and the chance to be successful, which is why we work to ensure that as many students as possible have the supplies they need.

But, we can't do this without your help. With your support, we can help students start the school year with the supplies they need to be successful in the classroom.

United Way of the Coastal Bend would like to thank the following for supporting this year's Operation SOS:

  • H-E-B Gulf Coast Region
  • KRIS Communications
  • 1st Community Bank in Portland

  • First State Bank of Texas - Three Rivers
  • Kenedy Memorial Foundation
