Eric Coleman's Family & Friends Day

Hello, my name is DeAnna Young-Coleman and I'm back again asking for help!  I'm sponsoring our 2nd Annual Family and Friends Day, in honor of my husband, Eric Andre Coleman (he passed away August 21st, 2015) on Sunday, September 10th from 1-6pm at Willson Woods Park in Mount Vernon.

 I will use the money collected to pay for a child's haircut and to provide backpacks with school supplies and a day of free food and fun.  Because of the generosity received last year, we were able to provide 48 backpacks filled with school supplies and 30 vouchers for a free hair cut at a local barbershop.  We had a snow cone and popcorn machine.

Eric was a paraprofessional at Edward Williams Elementary School.  He loved working with the kids.  He also worked as a barber and used to give free back to school haircuts as a way of giving back to the community.  I wanted to continue his vision of contributing and with your support,  I was able to bring it into fruition last year.I would appreciate any contribution you can give to assist in making this year's event memorable and a success!!
