Thousands of Backpacks for Schoolchildren Donated During Charity Event

The 13th annual Park Potomac Ice Cream Social for Charity featured a parade with police cars, fire engines, vintage cars, pom pon girls and former Washington Football Team great Dexter Manley as the event’s grand marshal. The goal of the event: to donate thousands of backpacks filled with school supplies for schoolchildren.

Park Potomac and Interfaith Works in collaboration with The Dexter and Lydia Manley Foundation, whose mission is to defend the right to read for students in the area, organized the event. Here’s a look at Saturday’s festivities.
