HOUSTON -- It was a back to school "drive" in every sense of the word. Parents drove up to volunteer stations to receive books, dental hygiene products and back packs filled with much-need school supplies on Saturday. The 12th Annual back to school drive, hosted by Houston Children's Charity and Rod Ryan of the Rod Ryan Show on 94.5 The Buzz, was all about the kids!
This year, the organization prepared 2,500 backpacks for underprivileged, school-aged children with the help of Brand Junkie, Houston Community College staff and other volunteers.
The Back 2 School program was started in 2005 with just one school district. The initiative now impacts thousands of students and dozens of school districts in the Greater Houston area.
Cheers to a successful school year for these amazing kiddos!
