H-E-B donates 1200 backpacks for DISD students
Dublin ISD received a special delivery on Wednesday of 1200 backpacks that will be provided to students for free with the start of the fall semester on Aug. 4. The bags were donated and delivered by H-E-B after the company noticed a way it could help.
According to Cheyna McLaren, North Texas Area Community Coordinator for H-E-B, the Public Affairs Department saw that the school district is providing supplies for all students in an announcement that declared that all the students would need for the 2020-2021 school year is a backpack.
H-E-B volunteered to provide the last piece for students in the district through cooperation with its Stephenville store. DISD Superintendent Rodney Schneider noted during the delivery of the backpacks that H-E-B is “probably one of the greatest supporters of public education” through things like grants and ‘Teacher of the Year’ awards.
