Janell Garcia, a family engagement specialist with Dorie Miller Elementary stated that school supplies are needed all year around.

 

“Donations that occur during the middle and towards the end of the school year tremendously help the children,” said Garcia. “It also helps parents who may have to make decision as to feeding their family or buying school supplies.”

Due to the continued support of Moussa Temple through their Shriners as Mentors (SAM) program, Garcia invited the Nobles to the LGEG kickoff.

 

“It was a pleasure for Moussa Temple to stand alongside Councilman Hall and other civic organizations as Texas A & M University started the AgriLife movement to teach young kids about vegetables and nutrition,” said Illustrious Potentate Derek Scott. “There is a great need for mentorship in our inner-city schools and I am pleased that our SAM director keeps us busy assisting where we can.”

 

Trista Saunders, extended-day site coordinator with the school said the activities held were outstanding. 

 

“It brings real life experience to the students which extends beyond the classroom,” said Saunders. “And support from the community shows the kids that there are people who are pushing for their success.”

 

Special recognition is given to the Desert of Texas Charitable Foundation.  Without their assistance, the donation of school supplies would not have been possible. 

 

According to H.P.I.P. White, the Temples SAM director and the president of the Desert of Texas Charitable Foundation, the foundation was established to assist Nobles and Daughters of the Desert of Texas in leveraging their funds and corporate relationships to better our communities. 

 

“Moussa Temple has embraced the formalized relationship which not only benefits them in meeting the charges given to them in working in their communities, but presents a blue print on how to be successful with relationships strengthened by commonality of purpose,” said H.P.I.P. White.
