Brentwood, NY – On August 29th, 2015 the Active 20-30 Club of Brentwood # 1037 and Adelante of Suffolk County Inc. joined efforts to celebrate the “Back to School Shopping Spree,” an annual event in which children from low income families were taken for back to school shopping. Thanks to the support of our local businesses, including JC Penney, both organizations were able to provide for more than 50 kids a $100 gift card for each of them to make their clothing purchases.
The program concluded with a Back to School Party Celebration with lunches provided by Pollo Campero, a recognition ceremony for all sponsors and volunteers, and the distribution of school backpacks. This event was a great success thanks to the involvement of volunteers and the local private businesses from our community, which helped in achieving the goal of bringing smiles to underserved children in the community and giving them a happy return to classes, which is the right of every child.
The Active 20-30 Club of Brentwood #1037 and Adelante want to extend their gratitude to all the sponsors and volunteers that made this event possible.
