Back to school!
Anthony Alvarez, photographer for Newark, N.J., took this photo of students picking backpacks at the “Newark Goes Back 2 School” event held Aug. 28. The city and local non-profit Newark Now co-hosted the event, themed “Proud Parks: Back to School Bookbag Drive,” at Military Park.
The event featured food, music, give-aways, and information on health, education, art, and after-school care programs for families. Newark youth in grades K-12 received free book bags and supplies.
