20TH ANNUAL SCHOOL SUPPLY GIVEAWAY
Mary Nelson organized the first Back-to-School Barbeque 19 years ago as part of an effort to reduce violence in her neighborhood. Besides the school supplies, she treated children and their families to a full-scale outdoor barbeque. Mary wanted to do something about the violence affecting children in the community. In 2002, the first year the event was held, there were 850 youths and their parents in attendance. Every year thereafter, the event has grown in record numbers. August 15th, 2020 we had to go virtual because of the COVID Pandemic, a Volunteer event was organized and we will be supplying all the backpacks and school supplies directly to the children's schools. Once again our Community unified together to make sure our children were ready for the upcoming school year, we collected the backpacks and school supplies.
For many years, our signature event has connected people from the community and we invite you to join us as a volunteer or attend the next one on August 21, 2021, 10 am til 6 pm!
