Eagle’s Trace Gives Back to Area Children With School Supply Drive

August 3, 2016

Houston, Texas—July is known as prime vacation season, but residents and employees of Eagle's Trace rolled up their sleeves for a good cause.

The resident-led Community Outreach Committee and the Eagle's Trace Erickson Living Values Team coordinated a school supply and coloring book drive throughout the month.

Donors provided hundreds of items, from notebooks to crayons and book bags.  The school supply donations will be given to lower income students of the Alief Independent School District in southwest Houston and the coloring books will be sent to young patients at Texas Children's Hospital.

Betty Keith is a member of Community Outreach Committee.  A resident of the Erickson Living retirement community for more than 10 years, she noted that "this is just a good thing to do.  I'm proud of the generous spirit shown by my fellow residents and employees.  There's nothing better than helping local children in need." 

It was a campus-wide effort as the items were collected in the independent living neighborhood and the continuing care neighborhood, Bayou Vista, and sorted on July 29.
