District 6 hosted their 4th Back to School and School Supply Initiative. This year we were able to provide over 1200 backpacks to needy students throughout the district. The students ranged from Pre-K to High School and included the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, Catholic Charities as well as the Children's Shelter. Along with free food various organizations partnered to provide free services including free haircuts. Several mascots entertained the attendees throughout the event.
