DMAB, Inc. Backpack Give-A-Way_2012
On Saturday, August 18th we held our annual DMAB, Inc. Backpack Give-A-Way for the children who participated in our summer camp and after school programs. We were very fortunate this year to have On Ideas as our corporate partner for this event along with many individual donors. There were many fun activities which included a bounce house, games, prizes, hot dogs and hamburgers served straight from the grill:) One of the highlights of the event was a balloon artist sponsored by our board member, Jennifer Ryan. He created all types of fun characters for the kids to wear either on their head or arms. DMAB would also like to thank T-May with 93.3 The Beat for supplying, games, prizes and great music for the event.
At the end of the event each of the children in attendance were separated into groups by their grade level and allowed to choose a backpack of their choice. Once they received their backpack they were filled with school supplies from pens to calculators. In addition, each child was given a pencil box donated by David Carrier, Carrier & Partners, Inc. with the “take charge” logo design. This year we supplied 75 backpacks to the the participants in our programs. The back to school event was indeed a beautiful day for the children and families who attended.
Our after school programs are now back in session ready to provide our students with homework assistance, tutoring, FCAT prep, computer lab, library and dance lessons. We are excited to have Aces Tutoring partner with us again this year providing quality tutoring services and the Nease Pantherettes conducting dance classes.
It was a great summer for the children and we are looking forward to a great school year!
