This school supply giveaway is a part of HBCUIn’s Youth Initiative program, one of its seven key programs, which promotes literacy and provides students with school supplies. During the Summer Bash, HBCUIn will provide backpacks with notebooks, pens and pencils, binders and folders as well as calculators, compasses and protractors for older students. The overall goal is to provide 500 students with a fully stocked backpack to last them throughout the entire academic year.
“We are looking forward to providing students in the Escambia County Public School System with the essential tools they need to again succeed in the classroom,” says Grover C. Fields, President and Founder of HBCUIn. “We can’t achieve our goal without the support of the community and corporations. So, I encourage everyone interested in donating to visit http://hbcuin.org/
