John’s Kids is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization,
Providing Additional Supplies to Title 1 Schools
in the San Antonio Metropolitan Area
Johns Kids began in the late 1990s as an informal activity of giving a few packs of paper, pens, crayons, and folders to a few schools that are in need.
John and Martha Blackwell were teachers at John Jay High School and knew their students did not always have the supplies required. Each year John would take a few hundred dollars out of his hunting money to purchase school supplies.
After a few years, John began working for the San Antonio Missions Baseball Team in order to provide more to the students. John retired first, and five years later Martha joined him to enjoy some traveling.

As the fundraisers got larger, more donors wanted to make tax-
John no longer works for the Missions, as more money became available from donations and grants.
We partnered in May 2017 with the HEB Retirees Association collecting PB, J, and crackers, which we distributed to Jerry Allen Elementary and Columbia Heights Elementary.
Johns Kids started with one elementary school and now provides for five elementary schools and two middle schools, and one high schools
