From this Year's Health Fair
They're patient," Valenzuela said of her granddaughters who arrived at the school at 5 a.m. in anticipation of the event. "I've been bringing them here for years, but the purpose is not just to get free stuff."
Last year, after attending the fair, the sisters had more school supplies than they needed, and they were able to put together a care package of necessities in an extra backpack they had. They then gave that backpack to one their teachers on the first day of school to help another student.
"This really helps so many people."
