In its 19th year, OSS is a community effort spearheaded by founding partners The University of Houston Alumni Association and the Houston Coca Cola Bottling Company – with crucial support from H-E-B, the retail partner and a host of other partners.”

Saturday August 16, from 8am – 12pm
Now in its 18th year, Operation School Supplies (OSS) has been helping elementary students in the greater Houston area get the supplies they need to start off the school year. As a collaboration between the Houston Alumni Organization, Coca-Cola and HEB, along with many sponsors, this award winning program has been very successful in years past. But it takes the help of many to continue this success. Please consider how you can help these young students get the supplies they need for a good education. Tax-deductable monetary donations can be made on online at or register at any of the local HEB stores. Check with your company’s HR department about matching funds. Supplies can be dropped off at one of several locations listed on the website. Additionally, OSS needs volunteers to help us sort and box the supplies for the schools to pick up. The big Sort and Box day is Saturday August 16, from 8am – 12pm. Volunteers can RSVP through the OSS website, or contact Cortney Kindall at 713-743-0828 or
