2016 represents the 10th year of this event! The Barnabas Connection could not be more grateful to the many groups, individuals, and businesses who partner with us to make the annual Back to School Fiesta a possibility.

441 preregistered + 34 walkins = 475 local students who  received school supplies, backpacks, payless shoes gift cards, plus a free book on reading level from Wimberley Rotary Club. We continue to fill sacks and provide backpacks as the schools identify additional needs.

Lion’s Club Vision screenings – 97 total screened, with 16 students needing referrals for vision assistance

9 Hairdressers volunteering their services, provided 80 free haircuts: Samantha Kingsley, Regina Rogers, Joffa Wubbena, Kelsey Griffis, Rashana Lynn, Leesa Stafford, Jennie horvath, Brooke Herrada, and Bridget Cook

Thank you to all of our volunteers for all of the hours of hard work, organizing, shopping, distributing, sacking, and so much more.  We could not make this happen without each of them and their selflessness in giving so much of their time.  See the 2016 Back to School Fiesta Sponsors!
