Back to School Roundup
The Tarrant County Back to School Roundup, presented by Walmart, is an annual volunteer-run event that supports underserved children with free school supplies, immunizations, haircuts, and health and dental screenings. Prekindergarteners through 12th graders whose families meet federal poverty income guidelines gather on August 8 at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth. Amid kids activities, games, and interactive booths, approximately 10,000 students are expected to receive free school supplies. Alongside supplies distributors, community-resource booths hand out information on topics such as literacy, parenting, nutrition, and financial literacy to help foster solid family life. Last year, the Back to School Roundup provided school supplies and services to 11,000 children in need.
