AVONDALE, OH (FOX19) - Children received free school supplies for completing an "Obstacle Course of Health and Safety," at the Back2School Carnival in Avondale Saturday. The event was held by Project Nehemiah, an outreach community ministry. It was designed to provide school-age children with school necessities while also providing them with health and safety education.
The eighth annual Back2School carnival provided almost 800 children from Avondale and surrounding communities with back to school supplies through the help of numerous sponsors. The Greater Cincinnati Children's Medical Center, Newman Foundation, and other donors who prefer to remain anonymous made the event possible.
