Pierpont Hosts Back-to-School Drive for Local Students

As part of its 30th anniversary celebration, Pierpont has kicked off its Pierpont Gives 30 community initiative. And as part of these efforts to give back, Pierpont is hosting a Back to School Drive for Central Texas Table of Grace (CTTG). 

Central Texas Table of Grace is an emergency shelter in Round Rock, Texas that provides children and youth in the foster system with a warm, welcoming and hopeful environment. As a 501 (c)(3), CTTG focuses on supporting children and youth ages 6-17 years with shelter, healthy food, healthy habits and life skills training. CTTG was founded in 2014 by Stacy Johnson, a former foster child whose first-hand experience inspired her to help other children and youth in the foster system. 

To support children at CTTG as they return to school, Pierpont is hosting a back-to-school supplies drive at our Austin office location (10900-B Stonelake Blvd., Austin, Texas 78759).

The drive will run from Aug. 14-18, 2017. All supplies can be dropped by the Pierpont Austin office from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
