Partners Salvador Mungia and Lisa Kremer recently devoted their energy helping McCarver Elementary students start the school year on the right foot by being part of the Tacoma-Peirce County Bar Association’s (TPCBA) Back-to-School day at McCarver. The TPCBA was the primary sponsor of this event with financial sponsorship also by the Pierce County Minority Bar Association. A committee composed of members of the TPCBA planned and volunteered at the school on September 6 to welcome the students back to school.
The event focused on connecting students and their parents with various community resources through organizations such as Tacoma Pro Bono, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, Team Child, Northwest Justice Project, and The Tacoma Housing Authority donated over 500 free books. Additionally, there were bouncy houses and obstacle courses, several games that children could play to win prizes, and twelve new backpacks were raffled off to lucky winners.
