Grapevine-Colleyville ISD will host its annual back-to-school fair Aug. 5.

The event is for school-aged children who pre-registered and whose families are experiencing financial hardship and/or qualify for free or reduced lunch at GCISD. The event will be held at Mustang-Panther Stadium at 2909 Ira E Woods Ave., Grapevine.

The program provides:
  • School supplies
  • Backpacks
  • Clothing, including new underwear and socks
A closer look

Grace, a nonprofit that provides assistance to individuals and families in crisis, still needs items donated. That list includes shirts and pants, light and heavy gently used jackets, and school supplies: pencils, plastic folders, crayon boxes, pens, notebooks and school-appropriate backpacks.

Volunteers who speak English and Spanish are encouraged to contact Grace to assist in the event, according to a news release.

Women's Division of the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce and Grapevine-Colleyville ISD Connect are other organizers.
