On Saturday, August 13, 2011, the Annual Back to School Drive, Health Fair and Business Expo was held at the PlazAmericas Mall in Houston, Texas. Hundreds of volunteers along with community leaders and corporate partners donated their time and money to make this a very memorable and successful event.
School supplies for the upcoming HISD school year were distributed to approximately 7200 students grades K-5. The students and parents were also given the opportunity to receive free health exams and consultation at the health fair as well as receive valuable information and services from the local business partners at the business expo.
As an added bonus, the kids were treated to a book reading and signing by Sam E. Bromley, the author of “Hunka Chunka Monkey Shapes Up“. In addition, the kids got to meet wrestler Chaz Taylor and former Houston Rockets and current Washington Wizards point guard Mike James.
It was definitely and honor and privilege to work with all of the volunteers, community leaders and partners.
