Aiding Schools in Need — Grants from Mission: Education

Last week, Mission: Education, a project of the Coalition of Americans for Action and Principles, formerly the Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) announced the results of two of their recent grants to Texas schools-in-need.

The goal of Mission: Education is “to be the hands and feet of Jesus” by meeting the material, psychological, and spiritual needs of students. As part of this effort, the Mission: Education initiative provides grants to public schools, with a special focus on at-risk students and schools.

This year, Mission: Education has given out two grants to schools in Texas. One gift of $750 was presented to Royal Elementary School while another gift of $500 was given to Royal STEM Academy.

The elementary school was able to use that donation to purchase clear backpacks for the students, meeting both a supply and a safety need. Royal STEM Academy plans to use its grant to fund a Lego league and/or a supply closet for student projects.

Hearing from Dr. Deborah Owens, Ed.D., Executive Director of CAAP and Mission: Education

We are so proud to be able to provide this help to students in need. If we want to improve education in our country, we need to start by ensuring that students’ most basic needs are met.

This requires the full involvement of the community, and Mission: Education is dedicated to helping increasing community investment in local schools. This is only the first of what we hope will be a series of grants to schools-in-need.

There are too many children who lack the basic support required to succeed in school. Through Mission: Education, we plan to do our part to help these children reach a brighter future.

Headquartered in Houston, the Coalition of Americans for Action and Principles (formerly the Coalition of African American Pastors) is a 501 (c)(3) organization that advocates for common-sense, faith-aligned public policy. CAAP uses its platform to educate citizens about issues that pertain to faith, family, and freedom.
