Maldonado, Liaison to the Homestead Education Committee to participate in their 4th Annual Back to School Jamboree at Ebenezer Worship Center on Saturday, August 10 partly sponsored by The City of Homestead Community Redevelopment Agency and the City of Homestead Community Relations Board. During the event, Councilman Maldonado passed out backpacks filled with school supplies, books, and school uniform vouchers to the children of lower income area families. Children also enjoyed a fun time with bounce houses free food and drinks, and free health screenings.
“It was an honor to participate in Fresh Start Family Services annual back-to-school event,” said Councilman Maldonado. “Going back-to-school can be a stressful time for many families and even more difficult for the ones struggling financially, however thanks to Fresh Start Family Services and their programs it will be easier this year for some children to go back-to-school and get the education they deserve.”
