Unity group to give away backpacks - Inkster group hosts free event
August 26, 2021
INKSTER - The Unity in the Community Group of Inkster announces their Back To School Backpack Giveaway to be held on Saturday, August 28 in Inkster. From 12:00 noon until 6:00 p.m., students will be able to get free backpacks loaded with school supplies. The event takes place at the Simmons Center located at 29150 Carlysle Avenue in Inkster.
Unity in the Community is a grass roots organization comprised of community service organizations that have come together to provide a single day of free fun, food, games, information, music and all types of family focused fun for students returning to school after a year of learning interrupted by COVID-19.
The city has hosted many backpack give aways in the past, but this group, comprised on non-profits, sororities, men's groups, women's organizations, social service organizations and others felt that their efforts would be more effective if they would band together to present one day of fun! Their intent is to make certain that every child and youth attending school is provided the basic learning tools that will set them on the path to a successful school year.
