I go to DSEF Back to School Extravaganza every year! It's FREE, festive and saves me & other local parents lots of money on school supplies. My daughter even got her hair done!
Operation Giveback is the perfect way to give back to the community. This event really brings joy to those in need during the holidays! The food is made with love and distributed the same way! Thank you DSEF!
