Although the origin of WithMerci is specifically for children with disabilities, we created "Returning 2 Learning" to assist those children in devastated impoverished areas within the Houston Independent School District. This year, The WithMerci Foundation is partnering with the City of Houston and Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner's Back to School Fest Saturday, August 13, 2022 - from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm at the George R. Brown Convention Center. The Back to School Fest, Presented by Shell, is designed to help economically disadvantaged Houston-area elementary school students and their families prepare to return to school. While we are returning to a new normal, Houston area families continue trying to find steady ground. There is still a critical need for assistance with basic school supplies and student health screenings.

 

We hope you or someone you know will consider becoming a sponsor of Returning 2 Learning.

 

Our upcoming fundraiser, Cocktails 4A Cause, is your chance to have some fun while supporting this effort. This event will give you an opportunity to assist children of families in need jump start their academic year, so they can focus on succeeding in the classroom without the stress or added pressure of back-to-school preparation.
