Quick Overview: Drew CDC needs assistance with helping to promote our Back 2 School Event on August 3, 2019.
Mission or Broader Program Description:
As spring time arrives and we wait patiently for summer, Drew CDC is getting a head start on preparing for the new school year. We are aware of how financial limitations and everyday life stressors will potentially deprive parents and students of the adequate preparation necessary for the return of the school year. According to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, 33.6% of residents in Service Planning Area 6 (SPA 6) are living below the poverty line, nearly triple the amount of other Los Angeles communities. To many, the simple joys of picking out a new backpack or lunch box, and shopping for essential supplies is out of reach.
We are hosting our annual Back 2 School Health & Resource Fair on Saturday, August 3, 2019, from 11am-2pm. Our goal is to provide every child – across each of our program areas – who resides in the Watts Willowbrook, Compton and South Los Angeles communities – a backpack filled with age-appropriate supplies.
Impact: By assisting with promotion for this event we will be able to help educate the community on the free resources that we have available for this event.
Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities: Volunteers will be given flyers to pass out to the community and to hang up around the neighboring area.
Requirements: Must be 16 years or older, and please dress comfortably.
* Volunteers under the age of 18 will need to bring and have signed by a parent/guardian a Volunteer Agreement & Release for Minors. The form can be found on L.A. Works website Q&A section.
Additional Details: Street parking is available.
