There are two back to school events for kids around the area today. One is in Cantonment at the Carver Park Resource Center on Webb Street. That starts at 11 am on Saturday.
Another will be in Mobile. Here is a news release from the organizers:
This year our Back To School Bash is on Saturday, August 11, 2018, from 11am to 2pm at The RV Taylor-Optimist Boys & Girls Club, 1517 Plaza Dr, Mobile, AL 36605. Elegant Knights Limo-Party Bus is requesting that a TV crew from your station come out and capture this annual event.
As we continue to make our footprint within the community, this Back To School Bash will also kick off our annual fundraiser for a non-profit organization and this year we’ve chosen The H.U.S.H. (Help Us Stop Hurting) Project. The H.U.S.H. Project primary focus is to help individuals start healing from past hurt, worry, pain, anxiety, and trauma caused from sexual abuse, exposure to physical and sexual assault, rape, molestation, and self-esteem issues. The H.U.S.H. Project provides counseling, awareness, resilience training, education, communication, and resources to determine warning signs and behaviors of, and prevention of sexual abuse in women and children.
As we know abuse occurs in all racial, religious and ethnic groups, as well as at all socio-economic levels; therefore Elegant Knights is standing by and fighting with The H.U.S.H. Project to raise funds so that education and awareness can be brought to our communities. Since this Back To School Bash is focused on families, this will be a great platform to launch our H.U.S.H. Project fundraising campaign which will commence at our Annual Customer Appreciation Night on January 19, 2019.
