In preparation for back-to-school, the Drew Lewis Foundation is hosting Fashion-Forward – – a children’s fashion show downtown in the Historic Fox Theatre August 6th. The children will be modeling their new back-to-school outfits and will receive backpacks, supplies, and hygiene items. This event raises awareness and funds to fight poverty in Springfield, MO. In keeping with the theme of education, The Drew Lewis Foundation provides education classes to those willing to learn the necessary skills to raise themselves out of poverty. The money raised from this event not only helps to provide these lessons for the adults, but also provides the back-to-school clothes and a backpack of school essentials for the children of those families.
