Join Us For Our Back to School Supply Drive August 16, 2014

Please join us this year as we once again have a Back to School Supply Drive. We started this event a few years back when we noticed that kids in the neighborhood around the Empowerment Center were going back to school empty-handed. We soon learned that there was a great need to help our neighbors with school supplies, especially at the beginning of the school year.
