Barrow County Family Connection held their annual Back to School Bash on Saturday, 7/21/18. MSF continued to supply its annual commitment of 100 book bags for the event.
Another dedicated yearly participant, Mark Wingfield (Mark & Company Barbershop), cuts hair for free during the event. Mark was born and raised in Winder. Mark’s shop is located at 37 E Athens St. in Winder, GA. When asked why do you participate in the event he laughingly said “It’s the least I can do to give back to the community since I was such a terror growing up!” Mark also stated “I commend everyone who puts the Back to School Bash together every year. I am just a small part of such a big event. I look forward to participating for years to come!” MSF appreciates Mark’s support and looks forward to future endeavors with him.
MSF also gave away 150 care packages filled with inspirational quotes, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, deodorant and feminine products and 300 anti-bullying packages that included a cyber-bullying brochure, inspirational quote, anti-bullying or inspirational bracelet and a blow pop.
MSF thanks our staff members and volunteers for making this a successful event!!
On Friday, May 18th, the Myles Singleton Foundation sponsored an event at Lowery Elementary School for all the third through fifth grade students. Students received sno balls during their recess time to enjoy with their class and teachers to reward them for their hard work in tackling bullying this year. In addition, over 40 stuffed animals were donated by the Myles Singleton Foundation to raffle off to students as an additional reward for the students’ efforts to end bullying. The Myles Singleton Foundation has played an integral role in helping to educate our students on bullying, its effects, and the importance of reporting bullying. Students have made great efforts this year to decrease the amount of bullying and improve the climate and culture of the school. We look forward to more collaboration with the Myles Singleton Foundation in the future to continue to educate and grow our students!
