Celebrity singer suprises students with free school supplies

Singing sensation Austin Mahone surprised students at Palo Alto Elementary with free school supplies followed by a private performance. 


The Thomas J. Henry family joined the YouTube star and handed out hundreds of boxes filled with school supplies as children lined up to get a glimpse of the young artist.


The kits included pencils, crayons, notebook paper, erasers, glue and other supplies.

Students in kindergarten through 5th grade at all of South San ISD’s elementary schools were given supplies this week. SA YES, the largest distributor of school supplies in South Texas, selected four school districts this year to receive supplies.  


The supply giveaway was made possible with SA YES partnerships with Thomas J. Henry, Methodist Healthcare, SSFCU, Ancira Auto Group, Fiesta Texas and IHOP.
