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.
EARLY LITERACY and HEALTH LITERACY
SMART teaches children, their parents, and their teachers, inside, outside, and online. We partner with child care centers, elementary schools, clinics, and other nonprofit organizations to reach thousands of people yearly in Galveston County.
Family Food Gardens
Kids, parents, and teachers learn to grow their own herbs, lettuce, and green beans with tiny starter box 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.
