Thank you to everyone who played a vital part in gearing up 300 inner-city children this 2017-2018 school year!
On Saturday, August 5, 2017, 300 children received backpacks, school supplies, gift cards, and uniforms at Urban Youth Impact’s two Annual Back 2 School Blast events. The first event was held at Urban Youth Impact’s main campus on Australian Avenue in West Palm Beach and the second event at Urban Youth Impact Riviera Beach at Stonybrook Apartments location for the apartment residents. Both events were a one-stop-shop for school resources, but also a family fun day with games, bounce houses, and a barbecue.
The Back 2 School Blast fulfills Urban Youth Impact’s mission to love, equip and empower inner-city youth by providing resources to ensure inner-city youth are starting the year off on more equal footing with their peers. Your support helps minimize inequities many from the inner-city feel so they can focus on what is most important – learning!
