Junior League Adds Dental and Vision Screening to Back to School Program

The Junior League of Lufkin’s annual Back to School Bonanza program will be expanded this year, to include a variety of free health related services, in addition to school supplies.

Starting August 6th, qualified parents can bring their children to the Lufkin’s First United Methodist Church to get required immunizations, along with vision and dental screenings, haircuts, and school supplies, all at no cost.

The program is for Angelina County families who can’t afford these necessities, so Junior League members will spend their summer working with Buckner Children and Family Services to screen parents ahead of time for those most in need.

Incoming Junior League President Jennifer Webster says they’ll use the same criteria that are used in the free and reduced lunch program.

Back to School Bonanza chairwoman Shelli Ellis says starting the second week in June, parents should contact Buckner Children to set up an interview.  She says they’ll also have a billboard with more information, and the phone number to call.

Ellis says Junior League members are certified to perform vision tests, but they need professionals like dentists, hygienists and hairdressers to volunteer to help with the Back to School Bonanza.
