4th annual Apoyandonos!
Round Rock police, civic leaders host Hispanic community resource fair Saturday
Time:   10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Date: 4/30/2011  
Location: Baca Center
301 W. Bagdad Avenue, Round Rock, Texas  78664 (Map)
Cost: Free

The Round Rock Police Department is hosting the 4th annual Apoyandonos!, an event tailored to Round Rock's Hispanic community but designed to provide all residents with a comfortable, child-friendly environment in which to obtain information or assistance about myriad agencies, organizations, and programs available to the community.

Apoyandonos! is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 30, at the Allen R. Baca Center for Senior and Community Activities, 301 W. Bagdad Ave.

Apoyandonos! is the brainchild of Round Rock patrol officer Rigo Valles, founded upon his many discussions with Hispanic residents about their quality-of-life issues and concerns. Valles wanted to creatively address problems that especially involve the lack of information or confusion about available services, police officers' awareness of Hispanic-specific concerns and misperceptions and distrust about law enforcement in general, the Round Rock police in particular.

The event has grown to include dozens of participants, including Round Rock police and fire departments, Williamson County and Cities Health District, Literacy Council of Williamson County, Child Protective Services, Texas Guaranteed Student Loan Corporation, Texas Criminal Justice Coalition, Mexican Consulate, and more than 60 other city, state and federal government agencies, civic service organizations and businesses.

The event is free, and refreshments will be provided.

For more information, please contact Officer Rigo Valles, (512) 218-5500.
