The numbers are in! This year, the Lake Houston Family YMCA had a big goal of serving 2,000 children through its annual school supplies drive YMCA Operation Backpack. Thanks to overwhelming support from individuals and businesses throughout the Lake Houston area, children in need will have the school supplies needed to start the year off right.

“The Lake Houston YMCA takes great pride in sharing this success with the community,” said Executive Director Chris Butsch, “Our goal of serving 2,000 seemed ambitious, but the generosity of our community was bigger. We are glad that we were able to exceed this number and ensure our youth were able to start the year with the supplies they needed.”

YMCA Operation Backpack, one of the largest back-to-school supply drives in Texas, has been a year over year success as part of YMCA of Greater Houston’s commitment to improve academic achievement. Last year, YMCA Operation Backpack delivered backpacks and school supplies to more than 120,000 children in Houston and surrounding areas. The Lake Houston Family YMCA distributed over 1,800 to Humble ISD alone in 2018.

City-wide partners of YMCA Operation Backpack are ABC13/KTRK-TV, 89.3 KSBJ and H-E-B. Sponsors include The Home Depot, Kidde, CITGO, Honda and Ashley HomeStore.
