This event was held at the Norfolk Police Department Training Center. This campaign targeted those parents of children in need that reside and work within the City of Norfolk, Virginia. As kids start back to any school schedule, supplies are needed. Having the school supplies they need helps kids achieve and keeps them focused about learning at school. Not having proper supplies contributes to a number of reasons that prevent our youth from moving forward.
The PAOB along with its lead sponsors that included Councilwoman and PAOB member Angelia Williams and the Sheriff Bob McCabe Foundation were on location among others at this free event that had entertainment, vendors, and served up delicious barbecue.
