SCHOOL SUPPLY DISTRIBUTION

School Supplies are exclusively for Glenn Heights Residents and are limited to no more than four (4) children per household. Food boxes are available for both residents and non-residents.  

Registered attendees can drive through the event location’s parking lot and pick up a free backpack stuffed with school supplies and more. Backpacks will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.

Student Registration - CLOSED as of 8.3.2020

You MUST have pre-registered to be included.  

Parents/ Guardians must provide proof of Glenn Heights residency, which can be in the form of a water bill and drivers license. 

You must be in a vehicle to receive a backpack on-site. If special accommodations are needed, please contact lauren.lewis@glennheightstx.gov, to make alternate arrangements for items to be delivered.  Walk-ups will not be serviced, as we are doing our best to ensure this event remains contactless.

We will write the total amount of pre-registered backpacks on your windshield to make it easier for volunteers to quickly gather the items and put them in your trunk.

The supply is first come, first served.  Once we run out of backpacks, we will be out so arrive early.
