Editorial: 100 Black Men of Madison Back to School Celebration 2018
MADISON, Wis. — So much of supporting our schools and ensuring the success of all of our children is celebrating education, and that includes getting excited about going back to school. And 100 Black Men of Madison are good at that.
For 23 years now the local 100 Black Men chapter has been holding an end of summer party to kick off the school year by making sure every child has the supplies they need to walk into class ready to go. That amounts to over 35,000 backpacks filled with necessary school supplies provided to area at risk youth.
Nearly three dozen partner organizations and businesses and hundreds of individuals contribute. What a powerful message to children that education is important, it’s fun, and there’s a whole community of folks who are here to help them be successful.
Thanks to 100 Black Men of Madison for your leadership, your example, and your commitment to our children.
