SAN ANTONIO (August 9, 2018) — On Saturday, August 11, 2018, District 7 Councilwoman Ana Sandoval and Place for Life Church are expecting over 1,500 children to participate in their Annual Back to School Bash. Teachers from Powell Elementary will also receive additional school supplies to help stock their classrooms this school year. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to noon at 5820 NW Loop 410, San Antonio, TX 78238.

 

The Back to School Bash has reached thousands of children in need over the years. Students will receive free supplies including backpacks, composition pads, spiral notebooks, pencils, and other necessary items for their school year. The event will also offer free immunizations and physicals, haircut vouchers, food, games, entertainment, and community vendors. Several lucky kids will even walk away with brand new bicycles!

 

Several community dignitaries are scheduled to attend, including State Representative-elect Trey Martinez Fischer and City of Leon Valley Mayor Pro-Tem Monica Alcocer.

 

“We want our students to know: the community believes in your success,” said Councilwoman Sandoval. “There are so many factors that go into student performance—having proper school supplies, a healthy body and mind, and pride in your appearance, among others. I’m proud to collaborate with Place for Life to put this event on for our children.”

 

“It’s our desire to be a blessing to the children and families of our community and the city of San Antonio - especially those who are in need of a little extra help this school year,” says Place for Life’s Pastor, Dustin Hawkins.
