On July 23, 2011, Rio Grande City Mayor Ruben O. Villarreal and Love Thy Neighbor Service Organization partnered with the South Texas Promotora Association, Catholic Charities of the RGV, Positiveonlywomen POW, and Socialife Starr to provide Rio Grande City children with much-needed items to begin the upcoming school year on a positive note. Approximately 200 children from Colonias Unidas, Las Lomas in the Rio Grande City area were provided with new shoes, backpacks filled with school supplies, free hygiene bags and for the families free health care screenings, CHIP/Medicaid applications, and more…MANY THANKS to all who made this event a HUGE success; your generosity, dedication, time and effort were well appreciated by the SMILES on the faces of the children and families!!
