Aldine EXPO distributes 6000 Backpacks & Supplies

ALDINE – On Saturday, July 29, Aldine ISD’s Family and Community Engagement (FACE) Department hosted its annual Back-To- School Expo at the M. O. Campbell Educational Center, where FACE staff members and district employees distributed free backpacks and school supplies to all families who attended the event.

The drive-through expo utilized volunteers and donations from various business sponsors of the event. From 9 to 11 a.m. about 2,000 vehicles were assisted with nearly 6,000 backpacks and school supplies provided to families and students.
