ARTportunity Knocks To host BACKpack-2-School Giveaway at Centennial Park
Hundreds Of FREE Backpacks And School Supplies will be given away
The BACK-2-School drive was created as a part of the mission of empowering youth through EDUCATION. Artportunity Knocks Board members and staff realized that it is impossible for kids to be successful in school if they do not have the necessary tools to be successful. They raised the funds through an online campaign and received a generous donation from Sam’s Club of Marietta to make up the difference! “It’s the community partnerships we’ve forged that makes the dreams of hundreds of kids come true every year,” says Chris Woods, Co-Founder and Board Member of Artportunity Knocks.
