The 13th annual back to school bash hosted by the Jim Wells County Juvenile Probation Department is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 11 at the JWC Fairgrounds.

From 10 a.m. till 1 p.m., children have the opportunity to get basic school supplies such as backpacks, spiral notebooks, paper and folders.

The juvenile probation department is asking local businesses and merchants to join by sponsoring the event.

Last year 1,000 children in JWC were able to receive school supplies thanks to the generosity of the community. Every dollar donated will go directly towards school supplies.

Anyone willing to set-up a booth or to give a donation please contact the department at 361-668-5708 by July 30.
