Big smiles and squeals of joy were ever-present yesterday as hundreds of school kids gathered at The Nehemiah Commission in Bridgeport for a Back-to-School Expo. WEBE108, St. Vincent’s Medical Center, and Goodwill gave each child a backpack full of classroom essentials.
Complete with face-painting, back-to -school hair cuts, a bouncy house, DJ, and a healthy-eating booth, the event showcased and celebrated the bounty and importance of education.
Thanks to the event sponsors and volunteers who brought abundant happiness to local children and reinforced the importance of friendship and education.
