2017 Back to School Bash

The Salvation Army Gary-Merrillville Corps and Carter Memorial Church partnered once again to host the 2017 Back to School Bash in Gary, Indiana. Through this annual partnership, and with the help of business sponsors such as Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys, 400 local kids were gifted with back packs filled with school supplies. This event also included a community fair, free hearing tests, haircuts, lunch, treats and fun activities for the kids. At the event, our Glen Lerner volunteers were tasked with a very important responsibility. In an hour and a half, they successfully cranked out over 1,000 ice cones for the kids! It is always an honor to serve alongside organizations such as The Salvation Army and Carter Memorial Church.
