The City of McAllen is helping students start off the school year on the right foot, by offering free school supplies and medical check-ups.
This is the first annual Back-to-School Fair, hosted in collaboration with the Doctor’s Hospital in McAllen, as well as Walgreens across the valley.
Before classes start, families are encouraged to attend the event, which offers free medical exams, haircuts, as well as much-needed school supplies.
The back-to-school fair will be Saturday, August 25th from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the McAllen Convention Center. All students from K-through-12 are encouraged to attend. It’s completely free.
