This Wednesday, August 26th, between 3-6 pm, The Dream Builders Project (The DBP) will partner with After-School All-Stars Los Angeles for their signature Back to School Charity Flash Mob.
Benefiting socioeconomically-disadvantaged students at the Bandini Elementary School in The City of Commerce, The DBP will supply more than 100 underprivileged students with new backpacks filled with a variety of school supplies, including folders, notebooks, writing utensils, mathematical equipment, as well as other educational necessities. Various educational games will also be run by DBP volunteers, including arts and craft activities, and sporting competitions.
“With our Charity Flash Mobs, The Dream Builders Project has an amazing opportunity to make a significant difference in the local community,” says Mayer Dahan, Founder of The Dream Builders Project. “Giving back to the young generations is our investment in the future.”
So far, The DBP has received generous product donations from local companies and organizations such as Tilly’s, Balloon Blast Toys and California Quake. Via online donation forums, such as Eventbrite, Paypal, and Crowdrise, DBP supporters have also kindly donated over $750 to go towards buying supplies, as well as equipment for the day’s activities.
Founded in 2002 by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, and with noteworthy support from Program Ambassador Kobe Bryant, After-School All-Stars Los Angeles (ASAS-LA) is a leading after-school program who aims to educate, enlighten and inspire thousands of students each day through various activities centered around academic support; such as health, fitness and nutrition; the visual and performing arts; youth leadership and community service learning.
