The Great Khalid Foundation Helps the EP Community Again
It's that time of the year when Khalid and his mother along with other organizations help out the El Paso community. The Great Khalid Foundation had their back-to-school program application open for schools to apply. Some schools had the opportunity to apply for The Great Khalid Foundation's Back-to-School backpack and supply giveaway.
The purpose behind this good cause is to help financially struggling parents out. Our children need the proper tools to achieve academically. Last year the school that received the backpacks was SSG Manuel R. Puentes Middle School. Principal Monica Castro's won over hearts with her compassionate words.
This time around the lucky school that will be receiving backpacks filled with school supplies was Parkland Pre-Engineering Middle School. The 6th graders will be rocking a new backpack and using brand-new school supplies. Those 6th graders are feeling pretty special knowing their school was chosen by The Great Khalid Foundation.
This good cause wouldn't be possible without Walmart, West Star, Mattress Firm, FirstLight Federal Credit Union, Coast Guard Recruiting (Albuquerque), and The Electric Company. Thanks to those sponsors 700 area middle school students will be well equipped. But most of all thankful for The Great Khalid Foundation and what they do for the El Paso community.
Every year The Great Khalid Foundation urges middle schools to apply in April. Khalid's non-profit organization has been doing great things to help out those who struggle. Especially single parents who have to live on a budget on a daily basis just to survive. So if you're a parent to a future 6th grader next year, urge the school Principal to apply.
