This year the annual Back to School Roundup, presented by Walmart and Sam's Club, will provide free school supplies to 10,000 students in grades Pre-K through 12th who reside in Tarrant County and meet specific income requirements.

To attend the roundup, families are required to pre-register in advance. Pre-registration is taking place Thursday through Aug. 2 at locations across Tarrant County (see schedule below). 

With 23.8 percent of youth in Tarrant County living in poverty, organizers expect another large crowd this year. Approximately 25,000 students and parents are expected to attend the event.

Focusing on helping students with many of their school-related needs, the event is a collaborative effort between Tarrant County and its 20 school districts, its municipalities, public health department, state agencies, nonprofits, corporate sponsors and volunteers.

Along with free school supplies, the roundup will offer health, dental and vision screenings, immunizations, haircuts and information on education, health and social services.

The event is free and open to all eligible families.
