2017 Back to School Bash

back to school backpacks

Thanks to all our volunteers and sponsors for helping make the 2017 Oak Hill Back to School Bash a great success Friday August 12th. 132 children in 36 low income families were provided backpacks stuffed with customized new shoes, socks and underwear thanks to the sponsorship of SW Family Fellowship church members, Whole Foods, Deep Eddy Vodka and the West Rural Travis County Advisory Committee. An additional 15 youth got a school physical allowing them to participate in sports or band at local middle and high schools. As always Southwest Family Fellowship’s hosting of this event made the day; providing a delicious dinner, inflatable water slides and a face painter for the children to enjoy during the event. Families came for the backpacks and stayed to eat, have fud and enjoy the community fellowship.

Incredible volunteer help came from the Church, Southwest Austin (Oak Hill) Rotary Club, and Constable Stacy Suits’ office as well as staff from the Travis County Community Center and student volunteers. These volunteers treat each family with the dignity and respect they deserve and made each person feel a valued member of our community. With our community partners from A+ Federal Credit Union, the fantastic mobile health team from CommUnity Care Health Centers, and Constable Stacy Suits’ Office, we provided valuable services to the families at our event. The A+ Credit Union team provided information about financial literacy and helped students open savings accounts with an A+ sponsored opening deposit. CommUnity Care’s Mobile health team provided youth school physicals so the students can participate in athletics and band this year. Along with his team, Constable Suits provided helpful information about child safety and the prevention of missing children. In addition, their team worked to build bridges between their law enforcement office and the community, an invaluable service.

Thank you to all our volunteers!
