The community and vendors showed up in a big way by donating over 300 packs of notebook paper that LEAP & the Emmanuel Family Life Center will match. The notebook paper will be combined with other school supply drive efforts by several churches and nonprofit organizations throughout the community to be able to distribute 600 to 700 backpacks full of supplies in the 16th Annual Housing Authority Back to School Bash in Lincoln Homes and Summit Heights on July 28th.

LEAP Board Vice President Coach Eric Purvis, echoed Tamira’s sentiments and gratitude to the community and LEAP partners for embracing the spirit of outreach. United we stand and together achieve true liberty.
