Stonecrest City Council member Diane Adoma is pleased to announce a Back-to-School event that will offer backpack giveaways, live entertainment and other activities as students prepare to head back to classes for the 2017-18 school year.
The Savvy Foundation, City of Stonecrest and New Birth Missionary Baptist Church are partnering to launch the Summer LIFT & Blazing Back-to-School Festival on July 22, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at New Birth, 6400 Woodrow Road, Lithonia.
The festival will celebrate the newly-formed city of Stonecrest while preparing students and parents for the upcoming school year and raising awareness for Minority Mental Health Month, which is observed in July.
Adoma said the free festival will be held at New Birth’s Family Life Center, gym and outside grounds. In addition to entertainment and giveaways, there will be health screenings, mental health vendors, workshops and other information available for parents. Food trucks also will be on the church campus for the day. The community is invited.
