Townsquare Media El Paso and FirstLight Federal Credit Union are teaming up to support The Great Khalid Foundation for the 2020 Back to School Program. Our goal is to secure 500 backpacks filled with supplies to distribute to local sixth graders entering middle school.

As our community is adjusting to an upcoming school year unlike any other before, we are committed more than ever to assist those in need. The Great Khalid Foundation Back to School Program is a local, need-based initiative presenting sixth graders with a new backpack filled with the school supplies required by the district. The goal is to provide children with the tools they need to focus on their studies and be successful in the classroom or studying online.

We are asking the community to make a monetary donation of $5, $50, $100, $500, or any denomination. We would like the community to participate in this local outreach by donating through the DONATE link below:

Townsquare Media El Paso and The Great Khalid Foundation would like to thank FirstLight Federal Credit Union, Viva Auto Group, Julio Cerra: Allstate Agency, and Upper Valley Urgent Care for their support of this year’s Back To School Program.

While things have changed in 2020, we are still hoping to help bring some smiles to local students' faces! We know times are hard, so please do what you can to help this amazing organization. Make sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram to keep up with The Great Khalid Foundation's latest updates.
