Saturday, August 12th left many children happy after their visit to the 7th Annual Back to School Bonanza.

Back-to-School-Bonanza

This was the seventh year that the  Junior League of Lufkin
hosted this free event for Angelina county school aged children together with churches, businesses and service organizations.  The event was held from 8 am – 2 pm at the Pitser Garrison Convention Center. Both parents and children poured in to take advantage of the freebies to help kiddos get ready to go back to school among those: free backpacks, school supplies, health kits, school uniforms, new tennis shoes, haircuts, dental checks, and much more.  Children from the Lufkin area will be able to return back to classes well prepared to tackle the happy opportunities of school. 

A PRODUCTIVE EVENT FOR ALL

The Tools for a Successful Start

The Back to School Bonanza is essential in supplying children with the necessary tools to enter school with a good self esteem which is instrumental in successfully undertaking the challenges of school, fitting in and constructing the foundation for a bright future.

Highly active in the Lufkin community, CHI St. Luke’s Health Memorial ER participated in the Back to School Bonanza by giving out information about health, safety and prevention.  “There was a great turnout we had steady traffic throughout the entire event.” Parents and students from the Lufkin area attended. Pre-registered students were in line since 3 am Saturday morning.

It was great to see so many smiling faces with their families preparing for the new school year. – Lauren Frazier, MBA Lufkin Administrator

Several kids went home feeling safe and sound with their new Eddie Rescue teddy bear.  These mini replicas of the real life Eddie Rescue from CHI St. Luke’s Health Memorial Emergency Center were given out as gifts during the event.  We hope that they will serve to help remind both parents and children that life is precious.  During a medical emergency, there is no time to waste.  There is an option that involves short wait times versus hours.  At CHI St. Luke’s Health Memorial Emergency Center, we are always open, always ready and always fast when caring for your loved ones.  Visit our Facebook or Instagram pages to stay up to date with our Lufkin Community activity participation, safety tips and great photos.
