About SA YES
SA YES supports local Title 1 elementary students with school supplies they need to start the year off right. They also provide the community with free grants to youth focused non-profits and local schools.
About Back to Basics
Each year, SA YES selects numerous Title 1 elementary schools in San Antonio and supplies every student (kinder - 5th grade) with a free school supply kit. Since 1998, SA YES staff, Board of Directors and volunteers, have personally distributed over 425,000 school supply kits to students in South Texas.
The school supply kits include the following items; colored pencils, crayons, notebook paper, erasers, glue sticks, folders, pencils, ballpoint pens and a box of tissues.
In 2019, SA YES provided school supply kits to 22,000 students in San Antonio, Texas.
About Our Event
Thanks for visiting our SA YES & AUSTIN YES Online Auction and Drive Away for Education Truck Raffle. In our efforts to alleviate some of the lost income, we have taken all our auction items that were donated to our annual Taste of Education Dinner and put them online! Like many organizations, we have had to cancel our annual event that funded a significant part of our operating budget. All purchases will generate much needed funds to continue our Back to Basics Project which helps provide more than 18,000 school supplies to Title 1 elementary students in our communities. A huge thank you to our sponsors and donors.
