A big thank you goes to Amerigroup who has contributed 1,000 backpacks for this event. We are also grateful to the many local businesses and organizations that have generously contributed school supplies to fill the backpacks. Backpacks will be given away to children and youth in Grades K-12. Children must be present to claim their backpack. 

Immunizations for children ages 4-18 years will also be available from the City of Lubbock Health Department at a cost of $10 for the first vaccine and $15 for two or more. Only the first 50 children will be seen. A complete shot record is required at the time immunizations are requested. Immunizations will not be given if a shot record is not presented.
