16th Annual Children’s Back-to-School Health & Safety Fair


Be There for All of the FUN!

Saturday, August 6th | 9am-12pm at Prince of Peace

VOLUNTEER // PARKING NOTICE: Much ado about…EVERYTHING! With several major events happening between Prince of Peace and Largo High School this Saturday, we’re asking that all PoP volunteers park at Bob’s Carpet Mart or a short distance away to help along with the traffic flow!

Ahhh, sweet summer… While many of our youth get all settled in with the sweet summer sun, beaches and fun, PoP is gearing up for our 16th Annual Children’s Back-to-School Health and Safety Fair! As that time draws near, there is so much to look forward to.

What’s it all about?
It’s an exciting weekend just before the first official bell of the 2016-2017 school year, and there’s no better time than this to get refreshed and adequately prepared for the new school year ahead. At PoP’s annual back-to-school health and safety fair there is no charge to attend, so join us if you can!

Children and youth will receive free school physicals (registration required and parent/legal guardian must accompany), free hair cuts, ample school supplies (while they last), and information from more than 30 community providers.

Now,  for the ‘good’ stuff…
Face painting, clowns and more! Oh, and who doesn’t like a good giveaway? You’ll want to be sure that your family is in place when the winning ticket number is called – there’s always a great prize! You’ll also receive healthy “good-for-you” snacks and information about after school programs to get youth involved in.

But, that’s not all!
WE NEED YOU! We’ll need volunteers of all ages in all areas of the campus. Check out the schedule below to learn just how you can be involved in this blessed adventure the Lord has allowed us to experience with all throughout our community
