Sharing Tools, Accessories, and Resources with our family of Local PTAs.  Texas PTA’s renewed store is now the S.T.A.R. Co-op!  A cooperative market place to get everything you need for your Local PTA.  The S.T.A.R. Co-op is your one-stop shop for resources and tools for your PTA leaders, accessories and gifts for your volunteers, teachers, administrators, and family members, as well as a little something for yourself. The S.T.A.R. Co-op will also be the best place to stock up on PTA apparel like volunteer T-shirts, dress polo’s, and men’s fishing shirts. Additionally The S.T.A.R. Co-op has partnered with few new vendors to bring you some incredible products. 

In an effort to further PTA’s vision of ensuring every child has a voice, not only in Texas but around the world, The S.T.A.R. Co-op will now be selling Pamba Toto products at our PTA events and online.  We want to empower children around the world to reach their highest potential.

There are two million orphans in Kenya, an East African country of about 30 million people. Some of these children can be found in Mathare Valley, the pit of heartbreak and despair and home to some 90,000 people within three square miles of Nairobi, Kenya. 

Pamba Toto is a grass-roots, women run non-profit that raises money to rescue these orphaned children out of the Mathare Valley slum and onto the road to success.  Pamba Toto creates some amazing handmade jewelry, scarfs, art, and home décor; all using fair trade materials.  Many items created are made by the very children that are being saved from these horrible slums.

In addition to new accessories, The S.T.A.R. Co-op will be carrying new gifts and PTA swag products for your Local PTA to collect.  We also recognize that more fathers are involved in PTA so we have expanded our catalog of products to include items for the Dads who are activity participating in our child’s education.

We have several new lines of products so come check us out at www.txpta.org\STARco-op or visit us at the upcoming Summer Leadership Seminar in Houston.  Proceeds from The S.T.A.R. Co-op are used by Texas PTA to support and empower our Texas family of Local PTAs.  Shop at The S.T.A.R. Co-op, and support your PTA’s mission to ensure every child’s potential becomes a reality in Texas and around the world!
