RCYF Hosts Awesome Back to School Drive-Thru Giveaway
River City Youth Foundation’s 10th Annual Back to School (Drive-
Thru) Giveaway event in August was filled with so much fun and
purpose! More than 150 children and parents received free
backpacks filled with school supplies.
Each family also drew raffle tickets to win free bikes, toys,
or household supplies. Hundreds of masks, food boxes, and
prepared meals were also distributed to the families who pre-
registered for the event.
A big shout out to all of RCYF’s youth leadership clubs that
volunteered to help make the event a huge success! They did
some amazing work ahead of the event and during the
Our Positive Social Leaders teen girls club ran the raffle
and photo booths. Our teen boys club Game Changers of Dove
Springs managed the food distribution station. Also our
elementary club Learners & Creators helped to decorate the
food boxes with positive school messages during Covid.
Special thanks to our event partner Tarrytown United
Methodist Church which works all year to make our annual
school supply giveaway a tremendous blessing to the families
of Dove Springs. This event was also made possible with
support from Google Fiber and Dell Latino Connect.
River City Youth Foundation is preparing to hold its
second Back to School Drive-Thru Giveaway in September. The
event requires pre-registration. Families interested in applying
for the event can call (512) 440-1111. Stay tuned!
