East End Allegiance: Our Youth, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, will be hosting the 4th Annual Back to School Ready event from 3 to 7 p.m. Aug. 15, 2021, at the Grays Building in Pacific Park.
“We will provide haircuts, backpacks, shoes, and free food,” said Bridgette Cooper, EEA:OY president. “We are requesting that parents sign their children up to ensure we can meet their need. Sign-up requires providing their name, age, and shoe size.”
Also among the activities planned for the youth attending the Aug. 15 event are music, prizes, free food and drink, bounce houses and wellness checks.
Those wishing to help make the EEA:OY Back To School Ready event a success by meeting all participating children’s needs may make donations of backpacks, shoes, drinks, water, juice and Gatorade as well as monetary or gift card donations. Just drop the contributed item off at KJC Beauty Supply, 1217 South Broadway Street, Suit Q2.
EEA:OY also offers silver sponsorship recognition for those contributing $25 and gold sponsorship recognition for those contributed $50 or more toward the event.
