St. Mark’s Church of Frankford (Philadelphia) parish hosted their 7th annual Back to School fair on Saturday August 12, 2023. At the event, a total of 500 backpacks filled with school supplies were distributed to children in the community.
“We are so grateful to Blake Gives Back for enabling us to carry out this special event in our underserved community. With your help, all of the children who attended that day began the academic year prepared with all the essentials they needed and their parents did not have to make a choice between paying for food and rent or paying for school supplies. Thank you again for your incredible generosity and support of our programming!” – Cristina Mancini, Senior Warden
