THE STORY:

Several years ago my family went through some tough times. When the new school year rolled around I found myself needing help to get backpacks and school supplies for my 4 children. I was told about a few organizations that were having events to distribute school supplies. I took my kids to one event that had been advertised on the radio. We got there early...there were more vendors set up to offer the parents products and services then actual school supplies...they gave out things like cups, frisbee's...never understood how those items were suppose to equip the children for school...That day I left that event wondering how I was going to get the actual school supplies my kids needed to start school.

I decided that once God Blessed my Family, My Family would Bless others. A few years later I started The Back To School Rally. When we hold the Back to School Rally we have food, activities, bouncers, a DJ...let's just say "Lots of FUN!". Our goal is not to "Feed The Masses", but concentrate on ONLY a particular group of kids to ensure that they have ALL of their school supplies that they need to began the school year. We get all of our donations from the community! The first year we Blessed 100 children. Last year we Blessed 125 children. This year our goal is 150 Children!! I pray that you find it in your heart to help us achieve this goal.  Our Deadline to donate is August 1,2014.
