CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — LEAD First, together with the Corpus Christi Independent School District and other local organizations provided free vaccinations and school supplies to students.

The drive-through event was hosted at Ray High School Saturday morning and was a big success.

Organizers say although the event is held annually, this year it's a little different.

“We're here trying to make a difference in the lives of the community,” LEAD first chief officer Guy Nickleson said. “You know with the economic situation going on right now, we felt like it was time for us to make it a little bit better for families.”

The organization is expected to service a little more than 2,000 families with free school supplies and vaccinations.
