“Ay mami, es muy heavy,” cried little Jose. The 5-year-old was one of hundreds of students who received a free backpack stuffed with school supplies at the 4th Annual Sergio “Chico” Rodriguez Back-To-School event.
The Precinct 1 Bexar County Commissioner invites about 1,000 Harlandale ISD students and their parents to his event every year. This year it was held IN the Adams Elementary School cafeteria on Saturday, August 11. By 8:00 a.m., families were lining up for the goodies. Once indoors, they also got information on county and city services available for struggling families. Immunizations and dental checkups were also free for the kids in attendance.
