Nursing Students Help Distribute School Supplies

sayes2Career Point College LVN students partnered with SA YES to help distribute school supplies to elementary students in honor of back-to-school. Our students helped unpackaged, organize and distribute the school supplies to children from Stafford Elementary and Gardendale Elementary.

Nursing is all about giving back, and our students take their role seriously. Thank you, students, for volunteering your time to put smiles on children’s faces. We are so proud of you!

Each year, SA YES selects numerous elementary schools in San Antonio and supplies every student in those schools with a free packet of School supplies. Since 1998, SA YES has provided over 200,000 deserving students with free school supplies.

More than 23,000 students received free school supplies from SA YES this year. SA YES visits each elementary school and personally hands every child an individual packet of supplies.

School supply packets include the following items: colored pencils, crayons, notebook paper, erasers, glue, folders, pencils, a ruler, ball point pens and a box of tissues.”
