Atlanta Councilman Kwanza Hall continued his “Year of Boulevard” community improvement project with a back-to-school party and community cookout on July 19 at Intown Academy.
Sponsored by Fulton County Commissioner Joan Garner, the event welcomed hundreds of families and senior citizens from District 2’s Boulevard corridor. More than 600 students received free book bags filled with school supplies and personal care items. Bottled waters and juices were provided through out the day.
Panda Express served 1,000 lunches. Atlanta’s Downtown Hyatt Regency provided fresh picnic dinners for attendees. There were also hamburgers, hot dogs and veggie burgers served off the grill.
“I am grateful to everyone who made this year’s back-to-school party the best ever,” said Hall.
