Above, cousins Ahkira Haskins, 5, and Ja’niyah Buckner, 6, pick up book bags filled with school supplies at the 9th Annual WE CARE Festival on North Side. Below, Kimber Green and Monay Williams perform on the program with a troupe from Anointed Vessels Mime Ministries of the Fresh Anointing Cathedral. Along with an array of other entertainment, the festival also featured health screenings and games along with the distribution of hundreds of stuffed book bags. Four churches teamed up with area businesses and community groups to stage the back-to-school program last Saturday. Location: Hotchkiss Community Center. The festival’s name is an acronym for wellness, education, community awareness and resident empowerment.
