August 24th 2019 – Back-to-School Backpack Bash
With the help of about sixteen volunteers, ADUD distributed over 600 bags. Each bag was divided based on intended age and gender of the recipient. For example, middle and high school students were given 19-inch bags,
Fun games and refreshments were available to each family who passed through, along with an arts and crafts center for those with time and younger children.
With a lively, creative DJ, the crowd and volunteers alike got to listen to Afropop, highlife, American Hip Hop, R&B, old school R&B and Soul music, Reggaeton and Pop music.
We look forward to once again providing the necessary resources to those from less fortunate starting points, that can help them better learn, grow and achieve. As usual, It was memorable.
Our 2018 Back to school Backpack Bash (BBB)
Each bag contained typical school supplies of writing utensils, erasers, glue sticks, folders, notebooks and complimentary snacks.
The day ran smoothly with beautiful late summer weather shining through. After each family passed through the line, they were encouraged to enjoy several snacks and cold beverages, partake in a few games, get their face painted and even register with ADUD’s contact list.
We helped out about five hundred families, with a variety of gender and age sensitive bags being distributed. ADUD once again demonstrated its values and organizational emphasis on community service and education as an empowering tool among immigrant communities.
We understand your requirement to provide effective assistance and quality works.
