Operation Thunderjoy!

Need a little extra joy and positivity these days? Here’s your chance!

Donate now to give holiday gifts to those in need!

Travis Heights Elementary is an AISD in-district charter school that works hard to offer innovative opportunities to its students, known as Thunderbirds. Travis Heights is one of the most diverse schools in the entire district with:

  • 80% of its students being people of color 
  • A predominantly low income population
  • The largest refugee population in the entire district

Each year, Operation Thunderjoy collects meaningful holiday gifts for the 50 Thunderbird families most in need. In past years, items such as clothes, shoes, large grocery gift cards, beloved toys, bikes… even necessities such as prescription glasses, beds, A/C units and extermination services were donated.
