The annual Back to School Roundup presented by Walmart is scheduled for 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Aug. 9 at Will Rogers Memorial Center. But families need to be aware that they must register at a preregistration event by Aug. 7.
The Roundup is an impressive collaborative effort between local and state government entities, the county’s school districts, public health departments, nonprofit organizations, corporations and volunteers.
Free school supplies will be given to about 10,000 underserved students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade who live in Tarrant County and meet specific income requirements. Preregistered school kids can get free immunizations, haircuts, dental and vision screenings and more.
How to apply
Because the need is so great in Tarrant County, families must preregister by Aug. 7 and meet eligibility requirements to be admitted. Families will not be admitted to the Roundup unless they have preregistered.
To register you must have a valid photo ID, proof of Tarrant County residency and proof of income showing the family falls below the poverty level. Learn about Department of Health and Human Services poverty guidelines and preregistration guidelines for 2018.
