We believe education is essential to helping our resident children become successful adults. That’s why every year GMF and local ministry partners come together to meet the back-to-school needs of our residents.
Many of our apartment complexes host back-to-school events to celebrate the beginning of a new school year. At these events we often distribute school supplies and encourage the children to do their very best in their new classes.
For example, Bent Tree Apartments in Memphis, TN, gave out over 250 backpacks loaded with school supplies! They also had hair stylists and barbers on site to give the children back-to-school trims.
Eureka Gardens Apartments in Jacksonville, FL, hosted two back-to-school events. First, Hearts of Gold Ministries, an outreach to underprivileged children, sponsored an event. This ministry, started by two young ladies, truly blessed the community!
Second, the law office of John Phillips sponsored Eureka’s other backpack give-a-way. Over 100 backpacks with school supplies were given away at this event!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to these and other back-to-school events. Because of you, our children are off to a great start this year!
