Children and families are invited to gear up for the upcoming school year at the “Year of Boulevard Back-to-School Block Party” this Saturday.
Beginning at 10:00am, more than thirty city, county, and nonprofit agencies will be on hand to connect the families of the Boulevard corridor with local social services. To kick off the morning and to address a lack of beds in the community, the Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta will deliver 100 beds to families from the corridor. They will also hand out backpacks.
The block party also features free refreshments, music by Radio One’s Hot 107.9, sports, and other family activities. As part of their ongoing commitment to The Year of Boulevard, the Atlanta Hawks will set up a mobile basketball court on Boulevard. The United States Tennis Association is bringing two youth-sized tennis courts for kids. Zoo Atlanta is bringing its Zoo Mobile.
