Sep 11, 2015

There was loads of food, entertainment and family fun at GWUL's Back to School Festival held at the Thurgood Marshall Center for Service and Heritage.  Over 500 kids received free backpacks and school supplies as well as free dental screenings, hairstyles, haircuts, and much more!  Thanks to our sponsors USDA, MedStar Family Choice, Collaborative Solutions for Communities, Howard University's School of Dentistry Pediatric Clinic, American Beauty Academy, Charming Locs, Crowned by Queen E., and Taste of Chad, as well as many other community partners for making the festival a huge success!
