The Junior League of Lufkin's 7th Annual Back to School Bonanza is August 12th From 8am  - 2p at the Lufkin Civic Center. Over 3,200 (700 hundred more than last year) free backpacks filled with school supplies will be provided to Angelina County student's K-12. In addition to the backpacks, they can get a haircut, provided by local stylists, a free school uniform, and a new pair of shoes, while supplies last.

I am so glad that they are doing this, for family's all over Angelina County, and they really hope to have enough supplies for everyone. You can make a difference when it comes to that. If you or someone you know, would like to make a donation or volunteer, please email Rebecca Henderson at b2sbjll@gmail.com.

If your child would benefit from this, Pre-register at Buckner, or for more information call 936-637-3300.
