“School Days Are Here Again” Event

On Saturday, August 15th, 2009, from 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Commissioner Tiffany Moore Russell will host, in collaboration with The Chris Johnson Foundation for a Back to School Community Event at the Hal Marston/Northwest Community Centers.  The theme for this event is “School Days Are Here Again.”

The purpose of the event is to equip students with the resources they need to be successful in the upcoming school year.  In addition to providing free school supplies, several community partners will be on site to provide information concerning recreational and educational opportunities for young people throughout the school year.

Additionally, there will be a health fair in collaboration with the school supply give-away to offer free school physicals on the day of the event.

Last year Commissioner Moore Russell gave away free backpacks filled with school supplies, hotdogs, chips, sno-kones, water, and free bicycles to thirty (30) registered families at the event. Together, it will be done again this year!

This is an awesome time to show our families and our students here in Orange County that despite this economic crisis we celebrate our youth and their scholastic achievement in this community.

Please join Commissioner Tiffany Moore Russell in her efforts to ensure our youth has each and every one of their needs met for this upcoming school year. We are preparing to serve 1000 youth; many whom would otherwise not be in a position to afford school supplies due to circumstance.

To better prepare for the event, a Pre-Registration Kick-off event will be held on Tuesday, July 28 2009 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at Barnett Park, 4801 W. Colonial Street, Orlando, FL. Chris Johnson, NFL Player, Tennessee Titans will be on site providing free souvenir autographs and taking personal photos with families in attendance.  Additionally, the Chris Johnson Foundation will give-away several $100 gift cards to Nike and Free Haircut vouchers at the pre-registration event.

For more information on pre-registering to receive free school supplies or to volunteer at Commissioner Tiffany Moore Russell’s “School Days Are Here Again” Rally please call (407) 836-5860.
