ATLANTA, GA - Families First joins forces with Starbucks, Kroger, and Target to hold a Back-to-School Bash event that gathers community and family around Atlanta on July 24, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

To be celebrated in Families First Westside headquarter at 80 Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard, Back-to-School Bash is free of charge and people can register directly on-site when the event begins.

A lot of families across the state are affected financially by the COVID-19 pandemic and having a hard time providing the necessary supplies for their children. This event aims to focus on community celebration while promoting family health, education resources, and food accessibility for people in Atlanta, and help them to fulfill their necessities.

This event will give away free backpacks, groceries, and other essentials to help families prepare for the upcoming school year. Back-to-School Bash also offers resources for families to build resilience, and help them to gain access to Families First’s resiliency screening tool to determine their readiness to face challenges in the real world.

DePriest Waddy, Families First CEO stated that this pandemic has tested the Atlanta community's resilience, and as they get back to their feet it is important to prevent families from suffering.

“The Back-to-School Bash is notable because of the corporate and non-profits working hand in hand to ensure the health and education of our Atlanta community. This event illustrates that companies and organizations understand the importance of their communities and that their well-being must be considered especially in times like this.” said Waddy.

Free COVID-19 vaccines for event attendees will be distributed by Families First in collaboration with Community Organized Relief Effort. In addition, there will also be other engaging experiences and entertainment, such as face painting, and music from a local DJ, along with free lunch offers.
