2013 Back 2 School Resource Fair
United Way’s six Back 2 School Resource Fairs were held on July 20th and 27th in Tupelo, Fulton, Pontotoc, Booneville, Iuka, and New Albany. Around 3,400 kindergarten through sixth grade students received backpacks and school supplies at these events! We would like to thank the 300 volunteers who donated over 900 hours of their time to make these events a success! We would also like to thank the Mall at Barnes Crossing, the Itawamba Attendance Center, the West Heights Baptist Church in Pontotoc, Baptist Memorial Hospital Booneville, Families First Resource Center of Iuka, and New Albany Elementary for generously donating the spaces for these events.
In addition, we would like to thank the following businesses, organizations, and individuals for their monetary and in-kind donations. Without your generous gifts, we could not provide these needed supplies to Northeast Mississippi’s children!Adult V Men’s Sunday School, First Baptist Church American Furniture Manufacturing, Inc.
