School supply shopping can be stressful for parents who struggle to make ends meet. Today in Robstown, State Representative Abel Herrero will help to change that.

Rep. Herrero is hosting the 6th Annual School Supplies Giveaway Wednesday to help out those families in need.

Roughly 1,2000 backpacks have been filled with all of the classroom necessities. These backpacks are ready to be handed out to school children, while supplies last. Children who want a backpack must be accompanied by a parent, and adults must have a child with them.

The giveaway runs from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Robstown High School Auditorium, 609 Highway 44 in Robstown.
