On Saturday, August 20th, the City of West Park held an inaugural Back-to- School Supplies Giveaway for students going back to school. In an effort to get the children ready for their first day back to school, over 800 bags were given to children containing grade appropriate supplies for the upcoming school year. The event also included a free basketball clinic hosted by the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity and Florida Memorial College’s Men’s Basketball Team, free haircuts to visiting children, music, and performances to get everyone in the back to school spirit.
The event was made possible by many donations from the following groups/individuals: The Runway Salon, Fire for Hire Music Group, Shani Talks, Nest of Living Arts, Better Sports Corporation Basketball, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Keyes Realty, TD Bank, the Broward Sheriff’s Office, Vice Mayor Felicia Brunson, and the City of West Park. Plans are already in place to make the event bigger and better next year so make sure you plan to attend!
Thanks to all who participated and supported this event!
