Street Fair Success
The Shining Stars teens took the lead on the 2014 Back to School Street Fair this year. Because of their hard work which consisted of over 150 hours, over 500 youth from their neighborhood and beyond have been provided with school supplies to start the new school year with. They have been working on this for months. The work they did included, inviting local businesses, community organizations, preparing food/games/activities, attending Irish Fest to collect the supplies, getting the neighbors to allow the street to be blocked off, shopping, and most importantly working together. Staff can not express in words how amazing the teens did on this project.
