Abide (www.abideomaha.org.) invites you to attend their Better Together Campus near 45th and Bedford on Saturday, August 12, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. for a Back- to-School Block Party! At this free, family-friendly event, you will enjoy food, games, music, a dance performance and so much more! School-aged children can receive a backpack filled with school supplies as they get ready to return to class. Families can also receive a food pantry box to help stretch their grocery dollars. Everyone is welcome to enjoy the party, meet your neighbors and connect with the Abide team and neighborhood Lighthouse Leaders! You don’t want to miss it!
