Back to School Bash with the Dream Center, Los Angeles

Kershaw's Challenge was thrilled to once again partner with the Dream Center in Los Angeles for their annual Back to School Bash.  The Dream Center is an incredible organization with an impactful mission: “Reconnecting isolated people to God and a community of support by providing human services that address immediate and long-term needs in the areas of homelessness, hunger relief, medical care and education.”

Last Saturday the Dream Center put together an incredible Back to School Bash where 2,500 children received new backpacks filled with school supplies!  The day started early with many families lining up to enjoy the festivities.

It is important to Clayton and Ellen that their children are a part of the work of Kershaw's Challenge.  It was a joy to watch their daughter Cali participate in handing out backpacks to all the kids.

The families enjoyed a carnival style party with games, bounce houses, face painting, and a petting zoo.  

Kershaw's Challenge was grateful for the support of UCLA and Papa John's Pizza who participated with us at the event.  Thank you so much for your support of Kershaw's Challenge and the Dream Center!

There was even a booth providing free back to school haircuts.

What a successful event!  Thank you to everyone who came together to provide such wonderful support for so many children heading back to school next month.
