AUSTIN, TX – The 11th annual school-supply packing event took place on August 6 at the Dell Jewish Community Center, hosted by the Hindu Charities for America (HC4A) in collaboration with Shalom Austin. 

A diverse group of over 200 volunteers united as a community to assist in assembling school supplies and backpacks for students preparing to embark on a new academic year. The backpacks were thoughtfully filled with essential school materials such as notebooks, pencils, pens, folders, and calculators.

Local school districts and community organizations are responsible for distributing these supplies to students. “With the aid of your generous contributions, as well as a grant from the Adobe Foundation and other kind-hearted donors, we successfully provided backpacks to support more than 1400 students from Austin and Manor ISDs,” HC4A said in a press release. 

The organization also extended assistance with materials to students under the care of Share the Will, African American Youth Harvest Foundation, Greater Love Baptist Church, Del Valle High School, and Asian American Families. “These affiliations truly mirror the diversity within our community, aligning with HC4A’s mission to serve a wide array of organizations in our residing areas,” HC4A said.

Mayra Hernandez, the Director of Manor ISD’s Whole Child, Community Partnership, and Community Engagement Program, expressed her sentiments regarding the partnership: 

“HC4A holds immense value for Manor ISD as an exceptional organization dedicated to removing obstacles that hinder student success. The lack of school supplies should never impede progress, and our collaboration facilitates the provision of tools that enable scholars to thrive in their educational journey.”

HC4A, is a nonprofit organization that provides educational and financial assistance to families in economically disadvantaged situations. HC4A’s activities are generally based on the 2Gen approach modeled by the Aspen Institute.
