Over 1000 Backpacks Given To Kids At The Back To School Drive Supply Giveaway in Houston

Summer is now approaching an end and the children are getting prepared for this school year. What makes this so unique was to see the community gather such a delightful school drive to prepare children and parents. This may have been a hot sunny day but it did not stop everyone from working together to create an impactful event.

Councilman Jerry Davis, Bread of Life, Impacting Houston, and East Houston Civic Club joined forces to have the back to school supply giveaway at A.G. Hilliard Elementary in North East Houston. Stepping unto the schools’ grounds, you could not help to view many children enjoying the fun, food and games at hand. They were given school supplies, hair cuts and hair do’s, and also everyday necessities for families. Councilman Jerry Davis gives tickets to WWE match and there were also cash raffles with East Houston Civic Club. From bounce machines to the break dancing challenges, the children got a chance to end summer with a bang!

We had the chance to speak with several community organizations and businesses as the provide information of their products and services:

Fredy Gomez with Harris County Texas, Shambriah Busby with Healing Hearts, and Desiree Barnes with United Health Care. Drive HISD was also in attendance, sharing their mission with school transportation.

With invites, we got the chance to see Miss Cynthia Bailey who is currently running for District B work hard with Impacting Houston Inc. Cynthia’s work ethnics and experiences in the community gives a huge impact to the neighborhoods. She strives to create a better quality of life for all residents in District B. As the backpacks and supplies were given to families, one of the main occurrences was to watch the teamwork from everyone.

There were over 1000 backpacks given to the children this weekend. This shined the facility even more with smiles from kids preparing to get back to school. We would like to thank Jerry Davis, Principal Erika Kimble with A.G. Hilliard Elementary, Bread of Life, Impacting Houston, and The East Houston Civic Club for sharing moments given to the future of the next generations.

Swisher Sweets Presents Their Huge Artist Project Concert with Special Guests – NOLATakover

New Orleans was granted a special gift after the holidays with Swisha Sweet’s massive show. Swisher Sweets presents The Artist Project where they created a show to highlight both mainstream and independent artists. The concert took place at The Orpheum Theater downtown of New Orleans. Every year, The Artist Project travels to different cities across the nation.

The NOLA Takeover gave seven emerging artists a chance to shine, opening for some of our biggest hip hop artists today. The artists consists of Snap Dogg, Kelechi, Iman, Charles Bryan, J Soulja, Don Doliver, and Rizzoo Rizzoo. These 7 artists were chosen and voted in by fans. They received the chance to open up for MGK, Desiigner, Gucci Mane, and Fetti Wap.

Concert Review:

Upon arrival, guests were greeted with a special welcome from Swisher Sweets. The venue was filled with a great amount of fans, supporters, and special guests. The cheerful crowd anticipates all talents.

With New Orleans legendary, DJ Mannie Fresh and Comedian Rude Jude, they kept the crowd rolling. They kept us hyped and full of energy.

What we noticed was that the lineup for the show became diverse. We would normally see all opening acts perform before the headliners. Well, Swisher shuffled the stars with aspiring artists. Giving everyone a chance to be equally heard throughout the show. This made the show more exciting.

Every artist gave a good show, we received a special show from Fetti Wap. He served his fans up and down the stage. He seemed to have enjoyed the show as much as the audience did. Wap dances and sang without a doubt in his mind. We got the chance to see him live performing all of his hit songs.

Next, we seen the best performance of the show By Machine Gun Kelly. MGK show seemed to be one of the most anticipated from the crowds reaction. He bounced from one end of stage to another, even climbing on top of balcony. Touching everyone from upstairs on down, we loved that part of show.

The last performance was worth waiting for as LaFlare (Gucci Mane) comes unto the stage glowing the venue up! Atlanta’s own comes to New Orleans and sang his fans favorite songs. Gucci is no stranger to the Big Easy, you can tell he felt as f he was at home. He performed hits such as “Lemonade”, “Freaky Girl”, “Wake Up In The Sky”, “Black Beatles”, and more.

Overall, concert was a great experience. We become intimate with the artists, which joined the fans together. One thing that we did noticed was some of the crowd participation become tough for some of the opening acts. The support from the audience lingered throughout the show. Besides that, we give the show both thumbs up! We would like to thank Swisher Sweets for allowing us to attend their show. Can’t wait to see what’s next for the New Year!
