El Centro’s 2023 Back to School Family Expo was successful!

El Centro’s Back to School Family Expo was another successful year with approximately 600 families in attendance. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, El Centro distributed 1,200 backpacks filled with school supplies for elementary-aged children from local schools in the East End.

Thank you to our volunteers, vendors, and community partners!

Thank you to our volunteers from Comerica Bank, Sesco Cement, La Raza Student Alliance at the Charles H. Milby High School, and staff who donated their time to help make the event a success. Shout out to our vendors for providing community and promotional information to our families, the Children’s Museum Houston for 100 family passes, Kids Meals for providing 500 snacks, and Buffalo Bayou Partnership, Texas Children’s Health Plan, and The Gonzalez Law Group for providing additional backpacks and school supplies.

Thank you again to all of our generous sponsors!
