EL PASO, Texas — The Great Khalid Foundation is back to help students with the new school year. 

The foundation will be at Riverside Middle School tomorrow distributing backpacks to every 6th grade student.  Not only will your 6th grader get a backpack but the backpack will come with some essential items so your student can be ready for school. 

The backpack giveaway will start at 2:30 pm tomorrow so make sure you mark that calendar.

Riverside Middle School asks that all visitors check in at the front office where they will be
directed to the distribution site.

This year’s Back to School program is presented by Walmart. “Walmart has been a part of
our Back to School program since day one,” said Khalid's mom, Linda Wolfe, “and we cannot thank them enough for their partnership.

The Great Khalid Foundation would also like to thank Raiz Federal Credit Union and WestStar for their continued support.

The Great Khalid Foundation is Khalid’s namesake non-profit organization founded to give back to the families in the community of El Paso, Texas.
