We are beyond excited for all of the partnerships and connections we made during the first TIPH Roadshow!
We want to thank all of our community partners, volunteers, and the state of Missisippi for welcoming us this past week. It was wonderful to learn more about the community and culture as well as all of the great public health work that is going on throughout the state!
We were able to donate over $250.00 worth of supplies to Jackson Public Schools Partners in Education (PIE). Teachers were able to come the same day and stock up on much needed supplies for their classrooms at NO COST.
We Saw A Lot:
- 834 Miles Driven
- 8 Towns
- 2 College Campuses
We Did A Lot:
- 13 Events
- 408 Backpack Meals Stuffed
- 2,000 Teacher access PIE supplies
- 200+ Middle/ High Schoolers Visited
- 168 New Vegetable Gardens Started
