More than 2,500 NISD students received backpacks filled with school supplies thanks to staff members, businesses, and community partners. The Whole Child Department works year-long to get these supplies into the hands of students who need them.
Donations are accepted year-round. Currently, the list of needs includes wide-ruled and college-ruled notebook paper, composition notebooks, folders (with brads and without), pens, map pencils, markers, mechanical pencils, and three-ring binders. Donations can be dropped off at the Student Services building located at 5651 Grissom Road.
