The Issue: Tarrant County Children Living in Poverty

More than 18% of children younger than the age of 18 in Tarrant County were living below the federal poverty level in 2007, according to the 2009 United Way of Tarrant County Community Assessment report. Without adequate resources, families can find it difficult to purchase the necessary supplies for their children’s education. This can put children at a disadvantage, leading to underperformance and continuing the cycle of poverty.

The Campaign: Distributing School Supplies

If this Grassroots campaign raises $600, then Tarrant County Back to School Roundup can distribute backpacks filled with school supplies to 20 underserved children. Each additional $30 raised will fund a backpack filled with school supplies for another child. To qualify for the school supplies, students must be Tarrant County residents in prekindergarten through 12th grade whose families meet the 2012 federal poverty income guidelines.

Tarrant County 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 at Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum in Fort Worth to pick up their supplies and receive essential services. Amid kids activities, games, and interactive booths, approximately 10,000 students 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 10,000 children in need.
