The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation (TFMJF) and Mayweather Promotions Rising Stars lend a helping hand to local children in need of school supplies. This will be one of several community outreach initiatives the fighters will be participating in throughout the year.
The Back to School Giveaway is set to take place on Saturday August 17th at the famous Mayweather Boxing Club from 11am-3pm.
Along with assisting families who may be having a hard time obtaining the necessary school supplies for their children, the Back 2 School Giveaway will incorporate TFMJF’s Fight4Your Education Initiative.
This initiative encourages youth development and focuses on strengthening the basis of education through literary and financial scholastic based workshops, writing workshops, and book/supply drives to ensure the tools to be successful are available. Character development and life skills education that highlights factors such as honesty, responsibility, time management, self-awareness, good health, and communication are also encouraged through this initiative. With Nevada’s primary schools being ranked 47th in the nation, The Floyd Mayweather Jr Foundation will continue to encourage and promote its principle of putting education first.
Many people don’t like to acknowledge it, but Mayweather does quite a bit to give back to the local community all throughout the year, and help families in need of food, other necessities, and much more. It’s always nice to see anybody in his position to get involved with endeavors like this.
