HACEP Ready To Launch 6th Annual Backpack Giveaway on Saturday

The Housing Authority of the City of El Paso (HACEP) brings back its annual Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) school supply giveaway event with style this year by revamping it into a full-fledged Back-To-School Fair to take place Saturday, July 23 from 8 to 11 a.m. at its main offices, 5300 E. Paisano Drive.

For the past six years HACEP has been able to give over 2,000 children (and underserved families) a hand up by setting them up for academic success in the classroom with something as simple as a backpack loaded with basic school supplies.

HACEP’s revamped annual school supply giveaway, now known as the HCV Back-To-School Fair, is generously made possible by a grant from the Moleen Foundation and supported generously by Chase Bank. The Fair will feature over a dozen exhibitors highlighting community services, support and information that will better equip HACEP families and their children for the school year ahead.

The Back-To-School Fair will include the traditional giveaway of 500 backpacks filled with approximately $30 worth of school supplies from Office Depot and also feature El Paso native and national IBF Featherweight world champion Jennifer Han, including other local leaders and vendors.
