SOUL is a community project that helps kids start the school year right. | News
The Soul Project in Perry hosted its annual Back-to-school event on Saturday. Soul stands for Sharing Our Unconditional Love, which was on display in the message of the event.
"It's also to instill values in them about their school teachers and being respectful and to let them know somebody loves them and cares about them and wants what's best for them," says founder Gloria Johnson.
Gloria and her husband started the one-day party with a purpose and a dream. It has evolved into a community project to help feed the kids in the old field community while giving them much needed school supplies, clothing and shoes to start the school year off on a good note.
"Right now were going into our pocket and making this a success but this year with the help from the city of Perry and different people we made this much bigger and better today," says Johnson.
More than 100 kids attended today's event in Perry.
