Cheaux Love and No Genre Label host 2017 Back to School Bash for inner city youth.
To gear up for the 2017 school year, Cheaux Love teamed up with No Genre Label to host its 1st Annual Back to School Bash. The Bash started off with Cheaux Love sponsored Literacy Walk at 9 a.m. 701 E. Main St. to promote literacy in the inner city community. At the end of the two mile walk the gates were opened to a completely free back to school celebration open to the public.
The event was filled with inflatables for kids and teens as well as a host of vendors from government organizations and local vendors. Through out the park organizers and sponsors were stationed to service to the community offering health screenings and providing information for students and parents on educational programs in the community, lunch programs and even after school programs. Each present child received backpacks filled with various school supplies such as paper, pencils, crayons, markers, scissors, notebooks and other necessary school-related items. Local non-profit organization Project Smile provided each family in attendance with care baskets full of household items, non perishable lunch items and hygiene products.
No Genre Label president Joshua Myers said they participated because, “It is important to help our children further their education during the 2017-2018 school year, to remind them that we believe each child is the seed of brighter future and to connect teachers with the parents to show that.”
According to , community involvement helps improves children behavior and academic success. Although not required principals from surrounding schools encouraged teachers to come out and meet their students and students’ parent in a non formal setting to build parent/teacher relationships.
