I was honor to be asked on to the set of a new TV show here in Peoria. "Living- Well" is a new live show that highlights events, personalities and programs in the City.
I was on the show talking about BackPack Peoria. Dr. Lathan, the superintendent of District 150 schools joined me. District 150 asked if they could partner with us this year at our BackPack Peoria event. We are delighted to work so closely with the school district, not just with this project, but with all the programs we have at DCP. Its our 10th year of doing BackPack and we have helped over 16,000 families over the years.
BackPack Peoria will take place at
Dream Center Peoria
This year we will have at the event:
- Over 2000 Backpacks loaded with school supplies
- 1000 uniform gift cards
- 2000 meals
- Medical exams
- Dental exams
- Expo highlighting over 40 agencies
- Kids carnival area
- District 150 new mobile resource center
