NEISD leads the way with Baby Box Co.


(L to R) Churchill HS senior Brianna Garza receives her Baby Box from Family Support Services instructor Leilani Long and Director Tyler Shoesmith.

“Success means having courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be.” These words written by famed physician and author Dr. George Sheehan are not on the North East ISD Family Support Services website for nothing. The staff works diligently to keep those words ringing true in everything they do for NEISD students and families. The department is proud to announce itself as a distributor for Baby Boxes Co., a program designed to support parents and improve maternal and infant healthcare outcomes globally. The District’s Family Support Services received its first delivery on May 17.

NEISD is the first District in San Antonio to take advantage of this free of charge program for parents. The boxes given to expectant and recent mothers contains diapers, wipes, nursing pads, clothes and other items.
