CentroMed helps students with back to school fair

For the third year, Rackspace will sponsor CentroMed’s Back to School Fair for students in the Walzem community. The fair is August 17 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the CentroMed Clinic/Walzem YMCA (5542 Walzem Rd). Rackers (Rackspace employees) donated a total of $9,000 to purchase over 1,800 backpacks filled with school supplies for children who attend the event.

CentroMed will provide free eye screenings, dental exams and immunizations. The Paul Mitchell School of San Antonio will give free haircuts, and the San Antonio Food Bank will provide breakfast and lunch for patrons. Rackers will volunteer at the event to serve food and facilitate activities such as reading, games, cotton candy, magician shows, outdoor chalk, face painting and more.

This is one of the largest back to school fairs in the city and the second-to-last fair by CentroMed this year.
