I own Alamo Premier Mortgage, my wife Laura and I decided to initiate this school supply and toy drive, using whatever office space we had, between doing mortgage loans we managed to collect over 75,000 items thus far, and few thousands arriving daily, we were forced to acquire a warehouse across the street. It is amazing how we can make a difference. I am proud of my staff and the efforts they made, come see for yourselves how we can change lives, the life's of those volunteering and helping to start with.

What amazed me is all the packages we get in the mail, we have received items from Canada, Alaska, Oregon, California, DC, and others. WOW!

We are expecting 750 boxes of toys today and a couple of hundred items from across the country. This is no ordinary business. And we are going to continue doing this as long as it takes.

We are coordinating with the local shelters and Kelly to drop off items as they are processed; we receive the items, clean them, organize then, repack and send out. School Supplies are going directly to School, we are delivering 150 Backpack today and 100 more Monday those packs are filled with all what our new students need along with a toy. Help us get the word out to Schools that we have the stuff they need
