HEB Supports Grants to Educators with $15,000 Sponsorship

October 25, 2022

The Plano ISD Education Foundation is grateful for H-E-B's sponsorship of $15,000 in support of the 2022 Grants to Educators, and for their continuous support of this important program over the years.

H-E-B helps inspire our educators to make dreams into realities for their students and campuses via grants that enhance instruction in schools and classrooms across the district. We thank H-E-B for their role in awarding 101 grants at 54 Plano schools in 2022.

Book Treasures aims to provide books to economically disadvantaged students. Each economically disadvantaged student will receive a treasure box of specifically curated, age-appropriate, high-quality books. The treasure box with 10-15 books will go home with each child so they have books to treasure at home.
