It’s a generous community that continuously makes sure that families that have fallen on hard times have the food, clothes and school supplies to make sure children are equipped for school.
The Killeen Independent School District administers its Homeless Awareness and Response Program to identify and assist students and their family members in need. More than 500 students currently qualify for services.
As part of the mission to assist, HARP maintains a food pantry and a community clothes closet. Donations are always needed. Entering into the holiday season, new socks and underwear and size 8 to 10 boys jeans are among the big needs.
