Our Back to School Bash was a success! First and foremost, we want to thank God for giving us the opportunity and all of the resources to be a blessing to others. We were able to provide 102 children with book bags and school supplies for this school year, a couple of free haircuts, and some prizes. Due to the weather, we weren’t able to do everything we planned but that’s okay! The community was still able to enjoy cotton candy and sno cones, music by DJ Aaron, and an awesome game of Limbo. Alpha & Omega Network/Institute collaborated with Newport News Police Department yesterday as well as a part of the PACCT (Police and Concerned Citizens Together)Initiative’s Food Insecurity Relief and distributed free groceries and Chick-fil-A to the community. Residents of Aqueduct Apartments were blessed around the board yesterday and we look forward to future opportunities to bring light to this community.
We want to thank EVERYONE who donated to make this event possible. A big thanks to Lighthouse Church in Glen Burnie, MD for their continued sponsorship to us and providing 50 book-bags full of supplies for this event! Thank you Reverend Eric “Duke” McCaskill Sr for supporting us, providing us with more backpacks with supplies and connecting us with the proper people to be in regulations for our first community event. Thank you Bubbles the Clown by Wanda for providing great entertainment and being patient and flexible with us through the weather. And thank you to our volunteers who showed up and helped us serve our community.
May God Bless you all!
