Broward’s  Back  to  School  Community  Extravaganza  2016

Broward  County  School  Social  Workers,  HandsOnBroward,   and  the  Children’s  Services  Council   of  Broward  County   organized  our  6th   annual  Back  to  School  Community  Extravaganza.    5700  school  supply-­‐filled  backpacks,  over  4000  books,  school  uniforms,  and  over  3000  brand  new  shoes  were  given  to  our  most  needy  Broward  County  school  children.    There  were  3  distribution  venues:  Plantation  High  School,  the  Pompano  Civic  Center,  and  New  Renaissance  Middle  School.    There  were  over  80  vendors,   which  included  agencies  that  give  important  services  to  our  families.    There  were  haircuts,  immunizations,  physicals,   face  painting,  bounce  houses,  and  other  services  available  to  the  children  at  each  event.    Our  School  Social  Workers  referred  most  of  the  families.  The  other  families  were  referred  through  our  partner  organizations:  the  YMCA,  the  City  of  Miramar,  and  the  Crockett  Foundation.  This  event  is  one  of  the  signature  initiatives  of  the  Student  Services  School  Social  Workers.  We  are  very  proud  to  be  able  to  help  plan  and  raise  the  money,  alongside  the  Children’s  Services  Council  of  Broward  County.    Thank  you  to  all  who  assisted us!
