Operation SOS

Operation SOS

Made possible thanks to a partnership between

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

More than 55,600 students across the Coastal Bend lack the supplies they need to start the school year. That's why 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 initiative that provides basic school supplies to local children in need.

100% of donations to Operation SOS go toward the wholesale purchase of basic school supplies. These supplies are then distributed to the 43 public school districts in our 10-county service area, where school administrators identify and provide supplies to students with the greatest need.

With your support, we can help students start the school year with the supplies they need to be successful. 

If your business or organization would like to make a monetary donation to Operation SOS, host a supply drive, and/or volunteer at one of our supply distribution events, please contact Stephanie Jordan at (361)882-2529 Ext 125.
