Dear Ward 8 Residents,

This year, I will host my annual Back to School Backpack Giveaway & Community Fun Day in collaboration with the Davon Thomas McNeal Foundation in the Bellevue community of Ward 8 and the event will take place on:

Saturday, August 13th, at Bald Eagle Recreation Center from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

We are excited to bring this annual event to the community and confidently send our scholars back to school. This year, we have a host of activities for families to enjoy, including:
* Game truck
* Facepainting
* Barbers & braiders
* Moonbounces
* Free food
* Live DJ and special youth performances
* Vendors of all kinds

I encourage families to register their students who may need a backpack and school supplies. To participate, residents must:
* Be a Ward 8 resident.
* Present photo ID
* Present proof of residency (a current utility bill or lease with a Ward 8 address is acceptable).

All giveaway items are available while supplies last. For more information about this event, please get in touch with us at 202-724-8045.
