Back to School 2021 800 804 Best Foot Forward Foundation

After a year and a half of not seeing our students in person, we were anxious to throw them a big back to school party, and that is just what we did. We created an outdoor carnival with a DJ, games, food, crafts and lots of fun. We set up our BFF Marketplace where students and foster parents could go “shopping” for school supplies, clothing, shoes, toiletries, snacks, toys, and more. Every student had their back to school pictures taken by a professional photographer, which we will later frame and give to them to keep forever.

We would like to thank WPTV for sharing this story, you can check it out at

It was a hot Florida summer day🌞, but that didn’t stop us from having a great time. Our kids and our coaches are ready for school! 😃

We would like to thank everyone who helped make this day possible, from donating supplies, to sorting through clothing and shoes, to organizing school supplies, to packing it all up and setting up the carnival. We could never have done it without you!
