Broadway vet clinic helping SSISD students

Most veterinarians and their staff have big hearts — they love animals and helping to keep them safe and well. One local veterinarian’s office also has a heart for children and families.

Broadway Veterinary Hospital launched its Back to School Drive Tuesday, July 23, to help out Sulphur Springs ISD children be better prepared for class this fall. The drive will continue through Aug. 19 — just in time to be packaged up and taken to school officials for distribution as needed among campuses.

The idea started simply as one staff member clipping coupons for others to help with costs of school supplies. After discussing the topic, clinic staff contacted the school to find out about needs among students at various campuses for supplies. They decided to go a step further and not only donate a bundle of supplies but to host a supply drive to allow clinic patrons and community members to help too.

“There is not a goal for the collection totals,” said Kaytlin Black with Broadway Veterinary Hospital. “The school told me just as much as we could get would be great.”

Those wishing to help need only bring donations of new supplies to the clinic, located just south of Wal-Mart, across from Sulphur Springs Livestock at 2019 South Broadway St. (State Highway 154 south). 

Schools supplies for all ages are needed and welcome. Some examples of items the clinic hopes to procure include backpacks, facial tissues, pens, pencils, highlighters, paper and glue — or any other supplies a student might neet while attending Sulphur Springs Independent School District. 

Aren’t sure what to get? No problem. Gift cards and monetary donations are also welcome to benefit the Back to School supply drive.

Broadway Vet Hospital staff members Kaytlin Black, Kim Keller, Karen Lopez, Amanda Huff, Madeline Massey, Nancy Temples and Pam Black will assist Dr. David Black in using the monetary donations to purchase additional supplies to donate to SSISD.
