Fort Lauderdale Community Center & Prince II Kings presents

To: Whom it may concern
Welcome to Prince II Kings 4th Annual Back to School Shoes & Backpack Giveaway, August 22, 2015 from 9 am to 1 pm at Osswald Park, located at 2220 NW 21st Avenue, Ft Lauderdale, FL 33311 with its partners Fort Lauderdale Community Center and Team-SOY; non-profit organizations dedicated to providing worthwhile programs for high risk youth within the inner city.
We’re asking your support by pledging $20.00 per child for a total of 50 children, only $1,000 to make a difference! And/or supply those less fortunate with a new pair of shoes, backpacks and school supplies for the new school year, anything is appreciated. We’re hoping not just for a one time donation but a partner and a positive role model for our children!
Last year this program had a line around the corner and it is strictly for kids! We had to limit shoes because we could not accommodate everyone. This year, we want to provide everyone who is in need with a pair of shoes with your help! Many older siblings, not parents, bring their families to get what they need to start school on an even footing with their classmates. Many that come live in households that have a hard time purchasing shoes for sometimes 4 to 6 children with incomes less than $10,000 a year. Their only means of shoes for the school year is this program.
Prince II King with its partners Fort Lauderdale Community Center and Team-SOY are dedicated to improving the quality of life for school-aged children and young adults. We strive to help our youth in developing leadership skills, responsibility, integrity, and courage. Prince II King uses programs that are affective, like the Annual Literacy Contest, the Annual Anti-Bullying Poem Contest, the Annual Talent Show, the Bridge the Gap Campaign, and a host of others. These events uniquely challenge the kids reading, writing, math, public speaking, social and leadership skills without them being aware of it.
Thank you in advance for your support and for more information call me at the number below!
