LAREDO, TEXAS (KGNS) -- Extra funds to help with school supplies for the upcoming school year are given to both school districts.
Administrators, county employees and community representatives were present at the check presentation given by the county to both of the school districts.
Previously, the supply our student campaign known as the SOS concert was held to do this but not this year.
"Well actually, instead of the actual school supplies they gave us the monetary donation that will be given to the schools, in turn will buy the school supplies. they know where the need is at so we are leaving it to the schools to disperse the supplies," said Webb County Judge Danny Valdez.
This is the 16th year the event is held. The county was able to collect over $15,000 for both school districts.
