Capstone Rural Health Center and Alabama Power Service Organization (Gorgas Chapter) are already busy planning our 5th Back2School Supply Drive which will be held August 3, 2018 at the old Parrish High School Football Field. This is Capstone’s favorite event because we can give back to the communities who rely on us for their health care needs. Our event provides backpacks filled with school supplies, coupons for clothing and shoes, and a T shirt for each child. This giveaway is crucial to many area children whose families may not have the financial ability to purchase a backpack and/or supplies for their child. Capstone and APSO understands how important it is for a child to have the necessary tools for a positive educational journey. The youth are our future leaders and employees and by equipping them with school supplies, we are nurturing their educational journey and promoting a brighter future for our youth.
Our event is heavily promoted through Facebook, Local Newspapers, Radio and Tv ads, flyers distributed over several counties and most importantly…word of mouth! Along with the various means of advertising, your company’s name would appear on the back of each T shirt and would be included on the event banner. Our event last year drew the interest of all the tv stations in Birmingham such as ABC 33/40, NBC, CBS and our favorite-TV 23 from the University of Alabama which was a wonderful means of advertising for all involved as each news station aired a story including pictures about our event. The Back2School event has grown in attendance each year and we expect to see over 1500 event participants patronize our event this year!
We are offering sponsorships for this year’s event and these are available for individuals, businesses and churches. This is a wonderful outreach to a diverse crowd of people from over Walker and surrounding counties and a great way to educate the participants about the services your respective business offers. You will find the sponsorship packet attached to this email. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
Together, we all can make a positive change in our communities and the lives of our most precious treasures…our children!
