The Hickory Hill Back 2 School Bash provides an opportunity for partners to strengthen our community, connect our city’s resources and eliminate barriers to youth enrolling, attending, and succeeding in school starting with day one. The Hickory Hill Back 2 School Bash will be advertised in Hickory Hill schools via Shelby County Schools.
This is a two-day event that begins with a Health & Wellness Fair on Saturday where parents will receive vouchers for ALL youth to receive FREE haircut, hair styling (to first 500 children), uniforms, backpacks, school supplies and shoes on Sunday! There will be food, fun, and the Southeast Memphis/Hickory Hill community coming together to ensure their students are positioned for success. Notaries will be present to help with residency paperwork and vendors including Universal Parenting Place, Porter Leath and Shelby County Crimes Victims Services and Rape Crisis Center will be in attendance.
