MIA Back to School Festival

Mothers In Action is a non-profit agency, and our mission is to help improve the quality of life for the underserved at risk youth and families in our community.  

This campaign is to raise money for our 20th Anniversary of our Annual Back to School Healthfair at Exposition Park's Christmas Tree Lane in Los Angeles on August 4, 2018 from 9:00am - 1:00pm.  Every year, we provide free much needed health screenings, immunizations, backpacks, school supplies, uniforms, underwear, socks while supplies last and valuable resource information on educational programs, healthy eating habits, C.P.R., job training/placement for youth and adults, sex trafficking, safety, earthquake preparedness, free and low income health insurance, and so much more for school aged children between the ages of 5- 15.  We also have free haircuts/hairstyles, food and entertainment.

We serve a minimum of 1,000 children in a fun atmosphere. Our late founding President, Brenda Marsh-Mitcell recognized that children fail in school because they can not hear, see or have the supplies they need to succeed.

The money will be used to buy school supplies and uniforms for the students that attend while supplies last.

The success of our organization and each of our events is only made possible through the generosity of our sponsors, donors and volunteers.  Any assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated and will go directly to making sure the underserved youth in our community hav what they need to have a successful school year.

All  donations are needed as soon as possible prior to  August 4, 2018.  For more information email us at mothersinactioninc@aol.com12166541_1530737147600781_r.jpeg
