Back-to-School Blast held at Aldine Y.O.U.T.H.

On Saturday, August 18, DePelchin/Partners with Aldine Y.O.U.T.H. sponsored a “Back-to-School Blast” at the Aldine Y.O.U.T.H. Community Center This event was attended by approximately 180 people from the community. The purpose of the event was to introduce the resources offered by DePelchin, and to show appreciation to the persons who have utilized the services since we joined the community in March 2001.

Thanks to the generous donations of local businesses and organizations as well as the coordinated efforts of many community volunteers, DePelchin was able to give away school supplies and various novelty items throughout the afternoon. The parents and children attending the function enjoyed food, fun, and games.

DePelchin Children’s Center wishes to thank the following people and organizations for their help in making this event a success:
Margarita Saldana, Wilbert Bingley, Jessica Guillen, Juanita Honeycutt, Ingrid Headen, Marie Guerra, Marcos Garza, Elizabeth Eben, Mr. Saldana, Jed’s Ace Hardware, Pinatas & Mas, Aldine Y.O.U.T.H. and Lee Bean. We are especially grateful to Angelica Garza who made contacts in the community and solicited donations. She also coordinated all of the volunteers. Without the help of our community volunteers and staff we could not have had such a successful event.

DePelchin Children’s Center is proud to put families first in Aldine and looks forward to serving this community for many years to come. If you need parenting classes or anger management classes please contact Barbara Jackson or Angelica Garza at 281-372-1216.
