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

VICTORIA – Driscoll Heath Plan will give away 500 free backpacks and school supplies during their Back 2 School event Saturday, August 15, 9-11 a.m., at the Victoria College parking lot (2200 E. Red River St.).

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, AHEC, Victoria College, HEB, and University of Houston-Victoria.
