Oakridge Elementary School held a Back to School event providing 100 backpacks filled with school supplies to help students start off their school year successfully. Students met the new principal, Mr. Aguilar, as well as local firefighters and police officers from the City of Hollywood. Former football player Bryant McKinnie spoke with children and parents at the event.
Students received additional services such as wellness check-ups, haircuts and information about local volunteer opportunities. The event was made possible through generous partnerships with Flaco's Community Gym, Physician Dr. Michelle Powell, BJ's Wholesale and Office Depot.
