TMI – The Episcopal School of Texas brought holiday cheer to 47 needy families through its annual Adopt a Family drive, organized by the school’s Interact community-service club with help from parent volunteers.

TMI students and their families donated clothes, toys, gift cards and household necessities to families of students at Mead Elementary School in the Northside Independent School District, many of whom are refugees from troubled countries.

Volunteers wrapped and sorted gifts, including 408 rolls of paper towels, 251 combs, 208 children’s toothbrushes, 65 bottles of hand soap and 55 containers of laundry detergent. With a costumed “Santa and Mrs. Claus,” TMI students, parents and faculty delivered the gifts Dec. 6.
Extra items were donated to the school’s pantry.

TMI also partners with Mead for its Reading Buddies program, in which TMI middle-school students visit first- and second-grade classrooms to read with the younger students.
