Rain outside, Sunshine inside as Kids get school supplies



NAVASOTA—The threat of inclement weather did not stop kids and families from participating in Grimes County’s Back-to-school Health and Safety Day on Tuesday afternoon.

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, Strengthening Families of the Brazos Valley and Chi St. Joseph Health made sure that children of Grimes County have a great start to the new school year with many of their school-related needs. Because of a grant and donors, over 400 backpacks and school supplies were distributed to children in grades K-12.

Participants were also treated to a light-bite lunch, health and safety demonstrations.

SFBV’s Program Coordinator for Grimes County, Chasitdy Love handed out brochures and  goody bags to parents.  Love also talked to parents about the new project which will help individuals to maintain healthy relationships, parenting and family financial management.

The program is scheduled to start in October.
