On August 24, 2018, members of the Permian Basin Area Health Education Center (AHEC)  and Communities in Schools met at the Walmart Supercenter on Midland Drive to pick up school clothes, school supplies and hygiene items for homeless students and to distribute these items to students in need. Elisa Williford, director of the Permian Basin AHEC Center and Hilda Sanchez, program coordinator for Communities in Schools helped direct this effort.

The Permian Basin AHEC is hosted by Midland College and is a service of Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center – Office of Rural & Community Health. The mission of the organization is to address the health care provider shortage and improve the health care access in the Permian Basin and Concho Valley through education and development of the health care workforce. Over 100 homeless youth were identified as in need of school supplies in Midland.
