Back to School Fair
Jul 24, 2018 by Jonathan Reid
Back to School Fair! We are excited to announce our partnership with Bridgepointe Christian Church in East Providence, RI for a Back to School Fair for children entering Kindergarten through 5th grade.
Here are the important details:
What: The Back to School Fair is a community event where elementary school students can receive new backpacks, school supplies, haircuts, eye and dental screenings for free. Complete with a pancake breakfast, face painting, and fun, this family-friendly event is a great way to welcome in the new school year.
Who: Typically, Bridgepointe limits this event to its immediate neighbors in East Providence, but this year they are releasing 100 reserved tickets to serve foster youth in Rhode Island and South Eastern, MA.
When: Saturday, August 18th, from 9 AM – 12 PM
Where: East Providence High School 2000 Pawtucket Ave, East Providence, RI.
If you or a foster family you know want to participate, you must register through their Eventbrite registration page.
Very Important: When registering, scroll down and select Fostering Hope Families as your group!
These tickets are limited and will be reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis, so register ASAP. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in volunteering at this event, there are many ways to help! From general volunteering to specific roles like providing haircuts (stylists please!) or face-painting (simple and easy designs!), there are opportunities for you to serve hundreds of youth including those impacted by foster care.
Please let us know if you are interested via email (email@example.com) or phone (401-524-0949).
We look forward to seeing some of you there!
