SMART puts 30,000 books each year into the hands and homes of children who need to read. Whether learning at home or school, kids need access to books more than ever before. Your tax deductible donation will help us provide books to thousands of Galveston County kids in 2022. 



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. Families, student organizations, and community organizations volunteer in our food gardens and outdoor classrooms, fighting childhood obesity and diabetes. If you want to volunteer, email and let us know when you are available.
