Affordable housing communities hold back to school parties with donated school supplies for residents.

School is starting and many of our YES! Communities have been hosting their annual Back to School events that assist residents with their children's back to school supplies.  The communities have been able to supply thousands of needed school supplies from backpacks, notebooks, pens and much, much more to our residents.  The communities have also hosted Back to School parties and barbeques to kick off this important time of the year.   

Kimberly at Creekside partnered with another neighboring community Creekside Estates in Seagoville, Texas to throw a Back to School Party for their valued residents. Residents of both communities received FREE school supplies and backpacks along with an afternoon fun-filled barbeque. This great event provided residents the opportunity to meet their neighbors, gather needed school supplies, and get the children excited for a great school year! Kimberly at Creekside and Creekside Estates enjoyed this opportunity to give back to their community and make back to school an enjoyable event by reducing the financial burden associated with it.  

Another community, Westmoor, located in Oklahoma City partnered with local vendors to donate backpacks, lunchboxes and other essential school supplies for the residents. The community team captured back to school photos of each student as they collected their backpacks filled with back to school goodies. The community manager, Tammy, said, "Each year we host our annual Back To School Event at Westmoor. It is an event that our residents come to with smiles on their face as they are thrilled to have the help and support of the community to get the kids back to school on the right foot. They look forward to this event because we give away over 300 backpacks filled with school supplies ranging from Pre-K to High School. Not only does each child get a backpack, but they also enjoy dinner in the office with the Westmoor Team, and the other residents. The event TRULY not only builds community, but it gives each child a fresh start for Back To School!"

Many of our YES! Communities hold Back to School events every year and provide our deserving families with supplies to start the school year off right. Our communities don't just offer affordable housing, they offer residents a true community with supportive management teams that want to add value into the resident's lives whenever the opportunity presents itself.
