Back to School Party 2013!

Special speakers at today’s event included Mayor Bill Bell, Mayor Pro Tem Cora Cole-McFadden, and Chair of Durham School Board of Education Heidi Carter challenged the children to dream big and work hard in school to help make their dreams come true.

The Durham Rescue Mission’s goal with this event each year is to provide new backpacks and school supplies for at-risk children in an effort to encourage them to be excited about going back to school and getting a good start on the new school year!

Our thanks to GlaxoSmithKline and all in the community who helped make this event possible.
