PAL Back To School Event
July 1 - August 15
Collect donations for back to school supplies for approximately 300 intercity youth from kindergarten to high school. In addition to school supplies we provide free haircuts, new backpacks, toiletries items, and line up volunteer doctors for sports physicals. We also attend the event to help distribute the supplies.
The mission of the Police Athletic League of Kansas City is to offer youth the opportunity to interact with police officers in a positive setting while participating in cultural, mentoring and sports programs with the main emphasis being placed on academics. The PAL program serves as a constructive alternative to anti-social behavior and boredom during their developmental years and into adulthood. FSR provides support for the police officers and kids through events like the back to school events.
This event allows our team to interact with kids who are from struggling environments and helps give the kids an opportunity for a solid start each school year with worrying about having the basic needs.
