"TOGETHER, WE KNEW WE COULD HELP HUNDREDS OF KIDS START THIS SCHOOL YEAR OFF ON THE RIGHT FOOT. "

The TKF Second Annual Back2School Event was easily one of the best, most rewarding days we've experienced. We collected hundreds of backpacks, school supplies, everyday essentials and shoes for over 250 children (grades Pre-K to High School) in East LA. In addition, we had our pop-up barber shop to give the kids a fresh haircut for the start of the 2017 school year. The kids were so excited to meet and greet Jake Paul and paint on our piece of artwork. With sandwiches donated from Fat Sal's, each family went home full and happy. Our goal was to give all of the children who came the encouragement and confidence to do well in school.
We wanted to thank Hubble Studio for donating the event space to us, Fat Sal's for donating all of the food, and a special thanks to Timothy Sykes for donating a generous $5,000 to our foundation. We consider ourselves so blessed to have such phenomenal volunteers and donors to welcome these kids in need back each and every year.
