Our Signature Project!
The Junior League of Lufkin, in partnership with Angelina County churches, businesses and service organizations, hosts the annual Back to School Bonanza on the second Saturday of August each summer. The big event is held at the Pitser Garrison Convention Center, located at 601 N Second Street Lufkin, TX 75901. Buckner Family Pathways helps to pre-register students throughout the summer and are also on hand the day of the event for those who were not able to pre-register. Back to School Bonanza provides 3,000 FREE backpacks filled with school supplies to Angelina County school children (K-12). In addition to the backpacks, children can have a dental screening and receive a free health kit, haircut, school uniforms, shoes and socks, but quantities are first come, first serve.
We know what a positive impact Back to School Bonanza has had on our community and we are committed to making it bigger and better year after year! As always, many volunteers and partners are needed to help with the event.
