11 Sep School Supply Train
The Junior League School Supply Train is one of our shining stars! Taking place since 1993, this program provides free school supplies, uniforms, and a new pair of shoes to area children who meet income eligibility requirements.
Since its inception, the Junior League of Longview, Inc. has pumped over $850,000 back into East Texas and provided school supplies for over 66,000 children. In its early days, the School Supply Train distributed the supplies in large paper bags donated from Brookshire’s Grocery Store. Buckner Family Services joined alongside the Junior League to screen eligible participants in 1995 and in 2003 First Baptist Church of Longview came aboard as well by providing their facility, The Roc, to host the event.
