As in years past, Senator Carlos Uresti, the San Antonio Food Bank, and dozens of community organizations are working with a few generous sponsors to help our children prepare for the important school year that lies ahead.
Senator Uresti participates in Back to School Fairs in communities across Senate District 19. All-in-all, almost 10,000 backpacks with school supplies will be distributed at these events, in addition to providing working families with important information about local community services.
The largest of the events is the San Antonio Back to School Fair, which draws thousands annually.
