Corpus Christi Fun for Kids Back to School Events Guide 2017

Friday, July 7, 2017
We're still in the middle of Summer but many parents are already preparing their budgets for back to school. Especially when stores are already to put out school supply displays!

Every year many organizations kindly put together events to help parents deal with the financial burden of buying all the back to school necessities.  We will be updating all the lists of all organizations putting on any back to school drives as we hear about them.  Is your organization putting on an event?  Let us know!

Also, compiling this information takes work, please credit or link back to Corpus Christi Fun for Kids when sharing.
