June 21 2023

Harris County Precinct 4 and Constable Ted Heap's Office are partnering with the 12th annual Texas Advocacy Project Backpacks for Hope Campaign – running now until July 12.

Community members can donate NEW backpacks and school supplies for children of survivors in domestic violence shelters across Texas by dropping off donations at any of these nearby locations:

Richard & Meg Weekley Community Center 8440 Greenhouse Rd, Cypress, TX 77433
Hockley Community Center 28515 Old Washington Rd, Hockley, TX 77447

Backpacks for Hope’s purpose is to ensure that every child in a Texas shelter receives a backpack filled with essential school supplies by the start of the new school year. By equipping them with these necessities, the campaign strives to empower these children to feel confident and safe on their very first day of school. 
This year, TAP has experienced an unprecedented demand for backpacks with over 2,100 requests, marking it the highest in the 12-year history of this campaign. Learn more about how you can help.
