2nd Annual Back 2 School/Back 2 Basics Community Fair Held Saturday

The City’s Transform Temple Department, Wilson Park Recreation Center and other community partners are joining together to host the 2nd Annual Back to School/Back 2 Basics Community Fair for residents on Saturday, August 17th. The event will take place at the Meredith Dunbar Learning Academy gymnasium located at 1717 E Avenue J from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
More than 40 exhibitors will be on hand to provide information about a wide variety of community resources covering health and wellness, education, employment and home ownership.  Temple Community Clinic will also provide free health screenings, as well as a limited number of school physicals, at this year’s event.
“The goal of this event is to provide residents opportunities and resources to help reach their personal goals, while also helping kids get ready to go back to school,” Said Jo-Ell Guzman, Resource Coordinator for Transform Temple. “We would like to thank all of the volunteers, organizations and businesses for their generous donations which help make this event such a success for our community.”  
The Back 2 School/Back 2 Basics event is free and open to the public. The first 300 Kindergarten through 5th grade students will receive a backpack full of school supplies.
