Thousands of children will receive school supplies and information at the roundup.

Pre-registration for Tarrant County’s 15th annual Back to School Roundup is open July 15-26.

Families may preregister for school supplies online or in-person during normal business hours at any Tarrant County sub-courthouse. School supplies will be distributed at the 15th Back to School Roundup from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 8 at the Tarrant County College South campus, 5301 Campus Drive.

Preregistered families will receive a voucher admitting them into the Aug. 8 roundup event and guaranteeing free school supplies.

To qualify for the free supplies, families must produce:

  • Valid photo identification.
  • Proof of Tarrant County residency (May, June or July 2019 utility bill showing applicant’s name and current address).
  • Proof of income (must meet 2019 federal income poverty guidelines).

The annual Back to School Roundup is a one-stop event that offers approximately 10,000 underserved Tarrant County school-aged children, ages 3-18, free school supplies, backpacks, haircuts, health, dental and vision screenings, immunizations, health and social resources, activities, and games. The roundup is a collaborative effort of Tarrant County, 20 area public school districts, the City of Fort Worth, Tarrant County Public Health, state agencies, nonprofit organizations, corporations and volunteers.
