Smith County Agencies Come Together For East Texas Children

Some East Texas children had a field-day Saturday, full of fun activities and games. Plus their parents got some important information at the same time.

Some 25-agencies across Smith County, as well as the CPS, held a "Kids Fest" at Tyler's Broadway Square Mall. Their goal was to bring the community together by raising awareness about child abuse, but also the many kinds of services that are available to East Texans.

"There are services out in our community that people are not even aware of," said Family & Protective Services Program Director, Tammy Stidham.  "We have the Hispanic community that we offer services to that are in great need. People's faces light-up and the smiles that they have and the reward is seeing those smiles on the children's faces."

April is child abuse prevention month.
