This Weekend's Summerfest to Give Backpacks and Shoes to Needy Children

Two organizations are teaming up to host a free back to school Summerfest. The Boys and Girls Club of Harlingen and Word In Season International Church recognized the need for supplies in our area.

This Saturday they will be hosting a big giveaway from 9am to 2pm at the Harlingen Boys and Girls Club. 500 backpacks filled with more than $15 worth of supplies will be given away to the needy children already handpicked by the boys and girls club.

We TMre really excited about giving back to the community. We TMre all about reaching out and giving so we believe the 500 backpacks are not just for 500 students, but also for 500 families," said Word In Season International Church Youth Director Noe Longoria

Boxes of new shoes will also be given out to families who need them.

Summerfest is a free weekend long event. For more information you can visit
