Wednesday, August 4th, a few members of the community decided to purchase school supplies to hand out to people in need. It was amazing to witness.

The event was a huge success. It started at 10a and by 10:15 the first round of supplies was already gone. The event organizers had to go to the store to grab more supplies.

"What moved me the most was just the energy of the space. There was no pushing or shoving to be first in line," Said event organizer Sara Brown. "For the most part, everyone came and enjoyed themselves with their fellow neighbor. It's the UNITY for me!"

When asked why did she decide to do this event, Sara replied, "I wanted to be a part of giving back to my community. This pandemic has taken such a toll on everyone. Through it all my family has seen so many blessings!  The Most High has REALLY shown out for us through what has been one of the toughest times in the country. I had to share those blessings with my neighbors!"
