This was the third year employees put the event together for local children.
The Sheriff even donated personal money to make sure the children have a good start to school.
"We don't give enough to last a whole school year but the Sheriff just trying to make a profound impact on the family and get the kids started on their learning experience for the beginning of the school year," said Sondra Walker, Terrell Co. Administrator.
The Back to School event is Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon at the Courthouse Annex Building in Dawson.
Games and food will also be provided.
The Sheriff is asking for more donations in order to make the event a greater success.
