The donation prepares the students for future success in education

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg and his office donated hundreds of backpacks filled with school supplies to Edgewood Independent School District (EISD) students on Tuesday.

EISD Superintendent Eduardo Hernandez said the 800 backpacks donated represent Mayor Nirenberg and the City of San Antonio’s commitment to education and supporting students.

“These backpacks will not only help our students be successful, but they will also alleviate some of the financial strain our parents face when getting their students ready for a new school year,” said Hernandez.

Even though the current school year is winding down, Mayor Nirenberg and the city are preparing these young students for their future.
