Alma Throws Back to School Bash for Branches
Date:9/26/2013

Miami, FL (PRWEB) September 26, 2013

Last month, Branches’ students were thrilled as Alma (a Miami-based Multicultural Advertising Agency) spent an entire afternoon with them and celebrated Back to School. Alma employees volunteered at Branches Florida City to celebrate the end of Summer Shade camp and to ring in a new school year. However, a new school year means a lot of additional expenses for Branches families, who do not have the means to purchase all the required school materials. Therefore, Alma’s team came together and provided a new back pack, filled with grade appropriate school supplies, for every single child who attended Summer Shade and every single elementary student who is part of the Branches Florida City Grow program. Over 100 students were able to go back to school, ready, equipped and excited.

Alma also provided food and drinks for the children and their families and a ton of thrilling activities. Alma brought in a giant water slide, and their employees served as face painters, manicurists and game leaders. It was an amazing day filled with fun and gratitude. Branches children even taught the Alma group how to dance some of the songs they learned over the summer, who participated with full excitement.

The Branches Grow Program serves elementary students, preparing them for lifelong success through enrichment of their minds, bodies and hearts. Branches' engagement with the students begins after school with tutoring and homework help but continues with enrichment activities including: Summer Shade Camp, Recreational Activities, Social Skill Development, Mentoring and Healthy Meals and Snacks. The Branches Grow program serves over 150 children each year and is among the top 10% performing programs as rated by The Children’s Trust. In addition, Branches is proud that 94% of our students maintained or improved their grade point average from the previous school year. Thank you again to Alma for their outstanding support and making sure that Branches' children are ready to learn as they go back to school.
