Annual Back to School Day

Motivated and Philly Lifts had a great time at our Annual Back to School Community Family Day on Saturday, August 12th. We had over 30 vendors distributing community information on their products and services.

Motivated along with Philly Lifts distributed free backpacks, school supplies, food, cotton candy, face painting, more. The children enjoyed two bounces, games, and trackless train rides. There were vendors such as ZGordon Unlimited with unique items and Deliciously Lemons with their unique flavors of lemonade.

The DJ was great with his lively music and energetic dance contest where kids showed off their dancing skills.

Councilman Jamie Gauthier stopped by to show her support. She walked around and greeted all the vendors and staff.

Philly Lifts, a Motivated partner in the BTS event, distributed diapers and baby items to families of young children along with a delicious medley of barbecue foods in the food court area.

Thank you to all our vendors who helped make this event possible and a successful day.
