The Morris Peterson Jr. Back-to-School Backpack program is done in collaboration with St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church. The first year of the program was 2015 and over 400 Flint area youth received backpacks and school supplies. In addition to the supplies, the families enjoyed food, a bounce house, live music, free hair cuts, information on healthy lifestyle from Commit to Fit, fire safety from the Flint Fire Department, and community outreach program information from the United Way of Genesee County. This year we hope to double the amount of supplies we distribute.
We are proud to announce our 2nd annual Backpack Give-A-Way, which will take place on August 27th from 10am-2pm. The location is St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church at 3020 Dupont St. Flint, MI 48504.
