Kids Receive Free Backpacks Full of School Supplies
ROBSTOWN (Kiii News) -
The new school year is just around the corner, and State Rep. Abel Herrero did his part to make sure students have supplies and backpacks for their first day of class.
On Wednesday, hundreds of parents and kids gathered at the Keach Family Library in Robstown for a free backpack giveaway. The backpacks were packed full of supplies they will need for the school year.
The line stretched outside of the building as families waited to get their free supplies.
"There's a lot of families, obviously, who understand the importance of an education and are just limited on their resources on getting the supplies for their children," Herrero said. "I'm grateful for the Keach Library and all the sponsors that made this possible."
Kids also received free immunizations at the event, which was scheduled to run until 7 p.m. All of the backpacks were gone within an hour and a half.
