On Saturday, July 31, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Project HOPE (Health Outreach Prevention Education) and Driscoll Health Plan will kick off the school year for students in the Alice Independent School District with a “Fill the bag “.
Backpacks and school supplies will be distributed while supplies last.
Additionally, there will be food distribution from the Corpus Christi Food Bank and CC Produce, alongside the mobile clinic which will provide COVID vaccines.
“The CBWF will be on hand to provide free COVID vaccines to people 12 and older. Minors must have parental consent to be vaccinated. CBWF offers Pfizer, Moderna and Janssen vaccines. The CBWF may also offer free COVID testing. Samples are collected on site, but results can take up to 72 hours,” said Alison Johnson, director of Community Health Outreach.
Community partners such as HEB, Jim Wells County Probation Department, Coastal Plains, DentaQuest, and Men’s and Women’s Health Services have come together to make Alice ISD students’ back to school exciting to hope.
Project HOPE is a true working coalition, which means we are committed to working with partners around Kleberg and Jim Wells counties who invest their time, energy and resources to help us create alternative activities, awareness campaigns and working with local government to change our environment for the better.
