1,000 Kits Distributed 

On August 11, we went deep in the heart of Texas as part of our continued official summer launch of Back 2 School America. CentroMed distributed 1,000 of our Back 2 School kits in Windcrest, a city just outside of San Antonio. It was a festive day with carnival rides, music, free snacks, arts & crafts, and more.
 
CentroMed is an integrated primary care clinic that provides pediatrics, family medicine, women’s health, dental care, optometry, pharmacy, fitness and much more. The 1,000 kits were given to families that use CentroMed’s services as well as other low-income families in the surrounding communities. Major support for the program (including a tremendous group of volunteers) was provided by Rackspace.

Arizona Build-A-Kit

We are excited to have the official launch of Back 2 School America (B2SA)! B2SA wishes to create and support educational opportunities that enrich the lives of children across the USA. 
 
The first B2SA Build-A-Kit took place on August 3 in Phoenix, AZ. Two companies, Studio MA, a leading architecture and design firm, and Alexander Building Company, partnered to assemble 640 Back 2 School kits. The Build-A-Kit was a huge success, and all of the school supplies will go to the underserved Maryvale students.
