Hidalgo County Commissioner Joseph Palacios and Love Thy Neighbor Service Organization are partnering with the South Texas Promotora Association, Catholic Charities of the RGV, and the Boys & Girls Club of Edinburg to provide approximately 200 children from the Edinburg area with much-needed items to begin the upcoming school year on a positive note.  In addition to the new shoes and school supplies, the family festival will also provide free health care screenings and CHIP and Medicaid applications for the children and families in attendance.

Love Thy Neighbor Service Organization and partners will be hosting a series of other Back to School Family Fesivals & Giveaways in South Texas benefiting over 15,000 children in Cameron, Hidalgo, Starr, Willacy & Webb counties with new shoes, backpacks, books, school supplies and more.
