PAOB's launches the Envision Youth School Supply Give-A-Way.

The Professional Association of Businesses (PAOB) launched a campaign to provide free school supplies to children in need called the Envision Youth School Supply Give-A-Way.

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.

Also, a very special thanks goes out to all the PAOB members, sponsors, volunteers, that included Councilwoman Angelia Williams, City of Norfolk, Quality Hands & Hearts Home Care, Karen Clements, Ammanuel Gerena, Ahmaude Griffin, Vonda Johnson, The Sheriff Bob McCabe Foundation, Norfolk Police Training Center, Binchmark Marketing & Agency Services, The Decker Law Firm, Graves Funeral Home,, Congressman & Mrs. Scott Rigell, ClubHorton Entertainment, First Colonial Inn, Philip Michael Fashion For Men, O’Brien & Associates, SALT Concierge Services, LeClair Ryan, The Franklin Johnston Group and others that got involved.

The Envision Youth School Supply Give-A-Way campaign is a part of PAOB's Community Development Programs for better communities.
