VFW Post Auxiliary 8621 holds drive-thru event for students. Packs contained a US flag, a snack and other goodies for students.

Students have not been in a traditional classroom setting since March, and even now with a new school year students are still at home learning virtually.

On Thursday, Aug. 28, the VFW Auxiliary Post 8621 held a drive-thru event at the Andersen Park to pass out packets that contained a few supplies and most importantly a United States of America flag.

The purpose of the giveaway was so that students, especially pre-kinder and kindergarten students and their parents, could recite and learn the United States of America pledge, according to the VFW Auxiliary Post 8621 President Elida Ramirez.

Marty Almaraz and his nephew, Ryan David Garza, picked up a packet of goodies from the VFW Auxiliary Post 8621.
