Texoma School Supply Drive Kicks Off

Posted: Updated:

TEXOMA - Help local school kids by donating school supplies and uniforms this week to Texoma Wellness Center.

The center is holding a school supply, backpack and school uniform drive through August 15th to benefit area school and Project Turning Point. Texoma Wellness Centers in partnership with Hometown Pharmacy in Gainesville and Axtell Pharmacy in Whitesboro are now accepting donations.

Patients and community members are encouraged to drop off $20 of school supplies, backpacks, school uniforms, or store gift cards to Gainesville or Whitesboro Texoma Wellness Center locations, Hometown Pharmacy in Gainesville, or Axtell Pharmacy in Whitesboro to benefit needy children in the Texoma area. 

Anyone bringing $20 or more in donations will get to draw for free services such as a 30 minute  massage, fitness center membership, foot detox, nutritional evaluation, free chiropractic care, spa services, and more.  There is no limit to the amount of times someone may contribute; and everyone who makes a donation will receive a free service with each donation.

Dr. Dave Tuck and his team at Texoma Wellness Centers are committed to making a difference not only in improving the health of the community but also in meeting the needs of our student community. 

On August 15th, Texoma Wellness Center will be taking the donations to local schools and Project Turning Point.  Project Turning Point is a mentoring program for at risk youth in the Texoma area and is in desperate need of school uniforms sizes 4T-18 to provide to its 
students.
