Denton ISD estimates 43% of enrolled children live in poverty as defined by the Federal Poverty Guidelines. That’s more than 11,417 children who could qualify for the Apple Tree Project.

Families who are struggling  financially may find it hard to provide the back-to-school essentials their child needs. The Apple Tree Project strives to provide each participating child with:

  • A complete set of school supplies
  • A new backpack
  • Two sets of new school uniforms/clothes
  • A new pair of shoes. 

1,500 students received back-to-school assistance with the 2016 Apple Tree Project. 

"An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest."
