iHeart Media to host 'Back 2 School Bash'
ALBANY, Ga. —
Kids in Albany have another chance to get more supplies for school.
iHeart Media of Albany is hosting their annual "Back 2 School Bash" on Sunday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Kids will get free school supplies, haircuts and hairstyles. Girls must have their hair washed prior. Organizers chose to have the event after school started, so parents can know what their kids still need to get.
Parents will also get more information about after school programs for their kids.
Organizers are asking for volunteer barbers and hairstylists to help out. They should come at 1:30 p.m. to set up, and they only need to bring their tools.
WJIZ 96.3 FM said this event is their way to give back to the community.
“There are a lot of kids growing up without these days, so we have to show that it takes a village to raise a child,” DJ Darkchild, on-air personality. “We have to show them that there is people out here that actually care for them.”
Adults can also benefit by getting free health screenings, including blood pressure and HIV testing.
The event will be at 809 S. Westover Blvd. Albany, Ga.
