HAAM thanks the community of Humble for donating school supplies and tennis shoes to area students.

For over 20 years, Humble Area Assistance Ministries (HAAM) has offered assistance to families in need. Through its Back to School Program, students are able to receive school supplies for the first day of school. This year, more than 2,000 students have received supplies.
This program would not be possible without major community collaborations between HAAM and the Lake Houston YMCA, Insperity, Sullivan’s Paint and Body, Kingwood Medical Center, St. Martha Catholic Church and Macy’s.
HAAM had a new partner this year from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints-The Woodlands Stake and partnered with Interfaith of The Woodlands to broaden their services.
The newest addition to their school supply program was Sneakerdoodles, and HAAM said they felt blessed to be the recipient of these new shoes.
“School supplies and tennis shoes can be expensive for families, so this project hopefully eases the stress of added cost for back-to-school time,” said Ester Valladares, program director.
HAAM wants to thank all who have carried on their mission to be the central agency for the Lake Houston area, supporting residents in need.
“We want children to be excited about the first day of school,” said Millie Garrison, HAAM's executive director.
“We must all work together to relieve family stress and minimize community duplication.”
HAAM is an interfaith-based organization that helps community residents in crisis by providing essential resources to move towards self-sufficiency. For more information, visit humbleareaassistanceministries.org. HAAM is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
