Code-3 Sponsored Back to School Event Provides 700 Backpacks for Alexandria Youth

On August 27, Code 3 partnered with Community Praise Church and Firefighters and Friends to the Rescue to sponsor a local community day that included hair cuts for children and backpack giveaways in preparation for the new school year. The event, which featured food, music, face painting, clowns and petting dogs, attracted hundreds of local residents and firefighters.

More than 700 backpacks full of supplies were distributed to youth at the Charles Houston and Brent Place Apartment Buildings in Alexandria, VA. 25 hair cuts were also provided free of charge, and 10 attendees registered for free tutoring services on-site, which will be made available during the school year.
