Here are ways to support the school - as well as some of our supporters...
- Become a Volunteer Gloria Bennett, our volunteer coordinator, can always find ways for you to help make TSBVI a better place.
- Donate to All Blind Children of Texas
- The mission of All Blind Children of Texas is to be a resource for the optimal physical, mental, emotional, and social development of all blind children in Texas. ABCTX uses donor funds to support Expanded Core Curriculum programs that TVIs and COMSs throughout Texas plan for their VI students but aren’t able to get district funds for. Several programs at TSBVI have been funded by ABCTX, such as the Badgerdog Creative Writing Program, specific activities of Camp Challenge, and sponsorship of White Cane Day (providing the clown, climbing wall and bounce house).
TSBVI thanks the following Community Partners! These are people in the community who... well, see for yourself. We love these wonderful, charitable groups and people who care about our students and our school...
