I Am A Queen will host the 13th Annual Back to School Drive on Saturday, August 7, in the parking lot of the Windsor Recreation Center, located at 1601 E. Gate City Blvd., Greensboro, N.C. starting at 10 a.m. until supplies last.
The event is FREE and OPEN to the community for children to come in to receive school supplies. However, parents are encouraged to accompany smaller children to make sure that the right supplies are given. All children MUST be present to receive school supplies.
