Back-to-School Festival promotes safety, health

AUSTIN (KXAN) — School may back in session, but some students may not have everything they need. APD joined several companies for a Back to School Festival this weekend at the Delco Center.

Students were able to get immunizations, vision screenings and free eyeglasses. Thanks to generous sponsors, this is their largest annual drive yet.

“We were able to have the Delco Center,” organizer Angela Angulo said. “We’re excited because we’ve got a great location. It’s close. We don’t have to be out in the heat.”

Hundreds of backpacks full of school supplies were also handed out.
