The Winn Parish Healthy Initiative Coalition is happy to present the 4th Annual Back to School Bash today, at the First United Methodist Church of Winnfield from 9a.m. to 1p.m.
The Back to School Bash is held each year to assist children of Winn Parish with their back to school needs. Each child is given a book that resembles a passport. They visit each station and participate in an activity that the vendor has. Then their “passport” is stamped then they continue to the next station. When the book is filled up, the child receives a lunch, and a bag of school supplies they can use at home.
Many of the vendors are resources for parents who may need help not only getting their child ready for school but also for things throughout the year. Community service organizations also participate and provide information on the services they can offer to the community. Door prizes are given away throughout the event.
This event is free to children as well as vendors. If you would like more information on your child participating or about becoming a vendor, you can contact either Kimberly Bruce at 318-413-0040 or Kimberly Nation at 318-729-6756.
