CEAVCO Audio Visual recently donated backpacks and school supplies to FRESH 101, a program that distributes backpacks, school supplies, and haircut vouchers to school-aged kids throughout the Denver Metro area. Since August 11, Fresh 101 has given away more than 800 backpacks.
Jason McBride started FRESH 101 six years ago with the goal of providing backpacks, school supplies, and haircuts to 101 children. Today, their goal is to give packs to 2,500 children by September 30.
Says CEAVCO’s Patricia Gordon, “FRESH 101 puts on a back to school drive at the start of every school year to support underprivileged children in the community. These kids are our future, and they deserve to have everything they need to succeed, including school supplies, new clothes, and haircuts. It helps them start their school year off right.”
Fresh 101 still needs school supplies (backpacks, notebooks, paper, crayons, rulers, etc.). Supplies can be dropped off at CityWide Mentoring and Tutoring (5405 E. 33rd Ave., Denver). For more information, contact Patricia Gordon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
