Local Health Fairs draw thousands of parents and back-to-schoolers

NORTHEAST HOUSTON– Last Saturday 3 different organizations held Back to School/Health Fairs, with remarkably large turnouts.
Greenspoint Mall hosted a health fair with free immunizations and backpacks, cosponsored by Harris County Hospital District, Houston Dynamos, and others.
Houston Community College had a Fair at Northline Mall, with entertainment, food, games and class registration.
But the largest Fair saw about 4000 parents and children show up at Bussey Elementary on Airline, and endure long lines as they waited patiently for free back packs, school supplies, and immunizations, and much more. About two dozen organizations had booths, displays, games, and give-aways that kept everyone happy.
This Fair was sponsored by Texas Childrens Hospital Health Plan, Aldine ISD, and the YMCA.

Next week’s Northeast News will have MORE photos and features about the Fairs.
