Back Pack Drive Kick Off!
Our 1st Annual BackPack Drive Kicked off August 13th at 107th Elementary School in Watts. My team and I along with parent volunteers supplied 107th St. Elementary students with Brand New BackPacks and school supplies. It was such a joy to see their smiling faces when they received their backpacks! Along with backpacks we also fitted every student that received a backpack with a pair of New Balance Tennis Shoes! We were very fortunate to have partnered with Shoes That Fit and they provided the shoes! Shoes will be delivered next week to the students at 107th Elementary School.
We also had the opportunity to serve the students at Harrison Elementary in Pomona on August 18. At Harrison we provided 40 backpacks with school supplies to the Kindergarten- Sixth Grade! They were very excited to have us!
Our 3rd School we visited today was Gompers Middle School in Watts. The students at Gompers received backpacks and school supplies as well as they were fitted for New Balance Tennis Shoes! A very special Thank you to Almease D. the PSW out at Gompers for letting us host our drive. A huge Thank you to Jackie and Ashlie for coming out and volunteering.
We have one more school to deliver backpacks to and that will conclude our 1st Annual Backpack Drive.
Teamwork makes the dream work!
