Driscoll Health Plan sponsors free drive-through backpack, school supplies giveaway

CORPUS CHRISTI – Driscoll Heath Plan will give away free backpacks and school supplies during their Back 2 School event Saturday, August 8, 9-11 a.m., at the Whataburger Field parking lot (734 E. Port Ave.).

Children ages 5-18 are eligible to receive the items on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.

In order to adhere to social distancing practices, it will be a drive-through event, where families will not need to exit their vehicle.

This event is open to the public. All attendees must be in a vehicle, and children must be present to receive a backpack.

The backpacks and school supplies are donated by local organizations, including Driscoll Health Plan, Driscoll Children’s Hospital Quick Care-Saratoga, Corpus Christi Hooks, Corpus Christi Police Department and AHEC.
