Thank You Pitblado!
We are grateful for the support of our community as we approach our Back 2 School Bash (#B2Sbash) this Saturday August 24th. In order to purchase school supplies we reached out to a variety or supporters and have so far recieved donations from local law firm Pitblado Law. This will compliment the information we have for students on post-secondary, the opportunity f=to have free hair cuts, have their bikes fixed up, and now, send them back to school prepared and ready to learn with adequate school supplies and back packs. We are grateful for this support. To visit Pitblado’s website click here.
We Are Not Done Yet
We still have 2 days remaining and AYO!, NEON and Ralph Brown are doing everything we can to get more school supplies to share with our young people. At our last summer gathering we had well over 150 community members attend and we want to make sure that we can provide back to school support to as many of our kids as we can. This event is being led by the North End Opportunity Network, a group of elementary aged students from in and around the St John’s neighbourhood who regularly plan community activities and personally identified helping our neighbourhood kids go back to school prepared as a priority for them.

We will be gathering any and all donations at the Meet Me @ the Bell Tower rally happening this Friday at 6pm, where our theme is ‘How to Stop Street Violence’. Please send us an email, a FB message, a tweet, or call Ralph Brown and let us know if you or your group are able to support. For more info on AYO! & the Bell Tower, click here
Thanks again to everyone for their support!
Love & Respect
