Books for Kids

In 2020, SMART put 32,537 books into the hands and homes of kids who need to read. Whether learning at home or school, kids need books more than ever before. Your tax deductible donation will help us provide books to Galveston County kids in 2021.

Family Food Gardens

Kids, parents, and teachers learn to grow their own herbs, lettuce, and green beans with tiny starter box and grow bag garden kits. Success means they harvest and taste the freshest and best food ever. Donate in support of family food gardens, fighting childhood obesity and diabetes.  


SMART teaches families, teachers, and volunteers inside, outside, and online. We partner with child care centers, elementary schools, and pediatric clinics to reach thousands of children in Galveston County.  

Thank you to our generous 2020-2021 donors!
