MSF is still going strong! We increased our anti-bullying events in Louisiana. We also had the chance to partner with different schools, individuals and organizations to support communities in Georgia, Louisiana, Florida and South Carolina. All of this wouldn’t have happened if we didn’t have generous supporters like you! Thank you!!!
LA School Anti-Bullying Pizza Party
Lowery Elementary School reached their goal of reducing bullying in their school! As promised, MSF provided pizza, drinks and cookies on May 19, 2017. The students thoroughly enjoyed the pizza party!
GA & LA Back to School Events
MSF participated in back to school activities in Georgia and Louisiana for the 2017 School Year. MSF gave 100 book bags to Barrow County In Schools for their annual Back to School Bash on July 27, 2017. MSF also attended the event and provided anti-bullying information with blow pops, as well as 150 care packages to students. As usual, Markus Wingfield of Mark & Company Barber Shop cut hair for free. This is the 5th year that MSF has participated in the event. In Louisiana, MSF had the pleasure of providing school supplies, 200 care packages, and inspirational quotes with blow pops to Donaldonsville High, Lowery Middle, and Lowery Elementary schools. The foundation also gave 32 book bags to students in need at a Baton Rouge apartment complex, and another 30 to a church in White Castle, La.
MSF Cyber Bullying Event
MSF hosted its annual anti-bullying event in Donaldsonville, LA on Thursday, October 26th. The foundation spoke to 5th graders at Lowery Elementary and 6th through 8th graders at Lowery Middle School. This was MSF’s first time speaking to the middle school. The presentation focused on cyber bullying. The students received certificates for them to sign pledging not to bully, cyber bullying pamphlets, anti-bullying wrist bands and anti-bullying bookmarks. The students had opportunities to win prizes such as blow pop bouquets for answering cyber bullying questions throughout the event. Several videos were shown including one created by the Loganville Middle School Under Covering Bullying Officer’s (UBO) club in Loganville, GA.
PADV Thanksgiving Events
MSF held its annual Thanksgiving events for PADV on November the 4th and 11th. We served turkey with gravy, mashed potatoes, snap beans, corn bread muffins, 7-layer salad and brownies and ice cream. The organization partnered with inspirational speaker Robyn Robbins to give her presentation, “Transforming Negative Experiences”. She shared strategies and insights on how she transformed negative experiences in her life and made vision boards with the parents.
