Uplift Education is excited to host our second Community Resource Fair on Saturday, September 10, 2022, from 10am-2pm, Hand in Hand, which will serve as a Dallas/FW community event to connect Uplift families with community resources. This event is free and open to the Uplift community, for a day of health, education, and fun.

An array of vendors will be on hand to aid in the following areas:

  • Free School Supplies
  • Free Food- dry and non- perishables with produce and bread
  • Childhood vaccinations

Free lunch and snacks will also be provided. Activities for children will also be available, so feel free to bring the entire family. Please mark your calendar for Saturday, September 10, 2022, from 10am-2pm. We cannot wait to see our Uplift community!

As the old African proverb says, “it takes a village to raise a child.” We believe it takes a community to help raise a school. Our goal is to build stronger partnerships between Uplift families and community partners, to nurture our schools and provide support in areas where our communities need it the most such as well-being, financial literacy, civic education and college and career support.

Uplift believes the answer to amazing education/school transformation is strong, authentic community connections and actions. When families, community groups, and schools band together to support learning, young people achieve the valuable support they need to be successful!
