Letter to Editor: 

On August 13, 2016, the Jim Wells County Juvenile Probation Department hosted its 11th Annual Back to School Bash. Because of the generosity of our local donors and vendors we were able to provide school supplies to over 1000 children.

With our current economic conditions it was amazing how the community of Jim Wells County still was able to donate to this cause. Without your help we would not be able to continue with this event.

Again thank you to all that helped us out. Hope we can count on you again next year. Thank you from myself and the entire staff of the Jim Wells County Juvenile Probation Department.
