IMPACTING OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES. Each school year, many families struggle with making a decision of food or school supplies. Once again this year, low-income families in need, will not have to struggle with this difficult choice. Thanks to the amazing support and generosity of the Real Life Austin Campus, many children from the Walnut Springs Elementary School of Dripping Springs ISD, will be blessed with the following:

  • 75 NEW BACKPACKS filled with: Crayons, colored pencils, dry erase markers, colored markers & glue sticks
  • 800 single subject spiral notebooks
  • 500 composition books
  • 45 packs of lined notebook paper
  • Expo Markers
  • Thin/Thick markers
  • Boxes of Crayons

Additionally, 90 breakfast tacos were delivered to the teachers of Walnut Springs Elementary as they began their first day back together as a team to plan for and prepare for their new school year.
