More Snack Packs for BISD Students This Year

Thank you to those who donated to the United Way Snack Pack Project to provide food to BISD students in need during the long holiday break. A total of 460 snack packs were delivered to students at 38 schools, a significant increase over last year’s total of 424. The selected students were identified by the school nurses as being especially dependent on the food served by BISD for their daily meals. The Snack Pack Project is an annual collaboration which includes the United Way of Southern Cameron County, Brownsville ISD, Saint Joseph Academy, and many other local organizations. This is the 6th year of this important initiative which is designed to provide meal assistance to local children in Brownsville.
