Over 468 children were given back packs and school supplies during this year’s Audrain County Back-To School Heath Fair.
That was increase of about 30 from last year.
The event was hosted by the Community Health Ministry Team at the Mexico United Methodist Church on Saturday.
Over the 12 year run of this event, over 4,000 kids have received school supplies at no cost.
Over 60 people from the Audrain County Health Department, Mexico United Methodist Church, Healthy Blue, Coil Construction, Shoes from the Heart, and Mexico Public Safety helped during the event.
