District 6 hosts their Back to School and School Supply Initiative each year. They provide over 1200 backpacks to needy students throughout the district. The students range from Pre-K through elementary 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, eye exams, dental exams and supplies. Several mascots including the Spurs Coyote entertain the attendees at the event along with KLOVE radio.
Councilman Lopez expresses his thanks to all partners and volunteers for their support and dedication. Successful events like this demonstrate the effectiveness of our work and of our partnerships within District 6 and the San Antonio community.
