The Community Service Committee has established our Summer Community Project with the St. Luke Baptist Church 2nd Annual Back to School SuperFest. IPMA-HROK will be collecting cash donations at our summer training conference to be donated to the Back to School SuperFest.
The St. Luke Baptist Church is preparing for its 2nd Annual Back to School SuperFest, which is scheduled for July 29, 2017. In an effort to better prepare and equip elementary through college students for the 2017-2018 school year, we are planning an event to motivate students, by providing them with some of the necessary items needed for school and to support them in achieving their future dreams.
This is a community-wide event, targeting all students. Last year the goal was to supply 500 students with backpacks filled with school supplies. This was a great undertaking and they need our help to be successful in reaching the goal this year.
Because of the budget shortfall for the State of Oklahoma, the schools are expected to do more with less, which places more of a burden on families to make up for the shortfall. Many families are not able to fill in this gap, for this very reason, they are asking for our support in their effort to make a real difference for students as well as our leaders of the future.
Their plans are to offer the following on July 29th: backpack giveaways, food, entertainment, motivational speakers, vendor booths, door prizes and more. Our assistance is greatly needed a well as appreciated for them to accomplish their mission. IPMA-HROK and its members can help by supporting our Summer Community Service Project. Their mission is “To equip students today for the challenges of tomorrow.”
Please help us in giving back to our community. IPMA-HROK will match a portion of the funds donated during training.
