“Back to School Bash gives students the opportunity to be school ready with supplies and confidence.”
From Perry South / Perry Hilltop, Eleanor Williams hosted a free, fun-filled event helping more than 150 families get ready for school with health screenings, inspirational music and speakers. Plus, every child received a backpack filled with school supplies, clothes, and dental supplies.
“This is a matter of the heart, being a former schoolteacher. I would ask kids: ‘Do you have a pencil? Where’s your pencil?'” said project leader Eleanor Williams. “Well, we were able to give more than 100 children all of it– crayons, markers, notebooks, all kind of supplies that would last them probably until the springtime.”
