• A “Back to School Drive” for children whose parents are unable to purchase school supplies and uniforms.
• A “Medgar Evers Book Scholarship” for Students who are entering college but cannot afford the required books.
• During the holidays the "Feed the Needy" program and Christmas Toy Drive. Ms. Evers believes that working with the community will help in the growth of the community.
