2017 Jumpstart 2 Success
Back to School Event
Equipping Students for Excellence
Saturday, August 12, 2017 Event begins at 8:00 am
Jacob Chapel Baptist Church
Jacob Chapel Baptist Church, along with the Office of the Mayor, is proud to host the 2017 Jumpstart 2 Success Back to School Community Event. Now in its 11th year, the Back to School Event is expected to be bigger and better than ever. Our goal is to assist local families prepare their children for the upcoming school year to ensure all students have the necessary school supplies and resources to excel.
For the past nine years, we have been able to assist families by providing school supplies, clothing, hair braiding, haircuts and other general educational information at no cost. This year our goal is to assist 3,000 students.
Every student deserves to have a backpack and school supplies of their own when entering school for the new year. In a population of students who often feel “less than” among their peers, a new hairdo or fresh haircut, a new backpack and school supplies can make an enormous difference in their attitude and perspective towards the new school year.
Support the 2017 Jumpstart 2 Success Back to School Community Event by helping us meet the needs of our local students by giving them the tools to succeed and equipping them for excellence.
