BACK TO SCHOOL BASH 2017
WE PUT SMILES ON CHILDREN’S FACES!
The 14th annual BACK TO SCHOOL BASH hosted by VICTORY LIFE on
August 26th was a success ONLY because of the support of businesses, churches and individuals who came together with a common goal of ‘putting a smile on a child’s face.’
The free community event held at the Parkinson Recreation Center was attended by 800 guests. A total of 600 backpacks (purchased from Bugatti & Staples Canada) were given away; 100 haircuts were done on children by Hairstylists from the community and 1000s of articles of free quality clothing was given out to make the back to school season easier. With the 116 volunteers we were able to bless our guests with 1100 hotdogs and refeshments. We gave away 1000s of free gifts (books, chips, coupons...). The children’s activities outside; face painting, games, and popcorn gave the event a carnival atmosphere.
