EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) - If you haven't bought your children their school supplies yet, you may want to stop by the Housing Authority's annual Back-To-School Fair this weekend.
As part of the HACEP's Housing Choice Voucher Program, the 8th annual fair will include a giveaway of 350 backpacks filled with approximately $30 worth of school supplies from Office Depot. There will also be exhibits that will help HACEP families and children prepare for the upcoming school year.
"For the past eight years, HACEP has been able to give over 2,500 children and underserved families in our HCV program a hand up by setting them up for academic success in the classroom with something as simple as a backpack loaded with basic school supplies," HACEP CEO Gerald Cichon says.
The event will be held Saturday, July 22 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at its main offices on 5300 E. Paisano.
