For just a minute imagine you are a 5 year old child who is standing

on the curb of a neighbor’s house watching your home go up

in flames. Now imagine finding yourself in a shelter with only the

clothes on your back. You feel your mom’s hand tremble in yours

and her face is tear-stained and aged as she gazes around the

strange surroundings. You have no pajamas to crawl

doll to clutch...nothing that is yours.

Disaster Backpacks can help. They can be given to a child and/

or adult when needed. Filled with the things that can get a

person thru one night or many. Kiwanis can be there to comfort and help

the children of each of our communities .


The Kiwanis Club of San Marcos is helping by joining Texas – Oklahoma Division, Kiwanis International Governor Ann Wilkin’s Disaster Backpack program,  We have purchased a supply of backpacks and will soon be announcing a project to assist the San Marcos Community’s disaster response capabilities by providing these Backpacks to those who experience these devastating events.

Availability of this service will be provided by the San Marcos Kiwanis Club and it’s Sponsored Youth organizations, Key Club at the high school, Builders Club at Miller Middle School, and K- Kids at De Zavla Elementary School
