On Saturday, August 4th, 2017, Improving Gifted Intellects held their first official event at Northwood Elementary School – a backpack and school supplies drive. The drive was a tremendous success, as 50 backpacks along with a numerous amount of supplies were distributed to the attending youth.
The event also featured games, a bouncy house, and food, all for free. We were pleased to be joined by Delegate Mary Washington (Delegate for the 43rd District of Maryland) and Marques Dent, a community leader and founder of the D.EN.T group (Delivering Educational Needs Together).
IGI is looking forward to their second and third official events, which will be their “Winter School Supplies Re-Up” for students and teachers, respectively.
