LAS VEGAS (August 12, 2019) – For the 7th consecutive year, The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation’s Back-2-School Giveaway provided hundreds of families in the Las Vegas community with over 1,000 backpacks filled with supplies and books for students in attendance, making this the biggest event to date! The giveaway was held at Craig Ranch Park in North Las Vegas and was presented by The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation and Mayweather Promotions joined by the Mayweather Promotions’ fighters.
The event also featured an arts & crafts station with coloring pages, pencil topper creations by Discovery Children’s Museum, and complimentary eye exams courtesy of Eye Care 4 Kids. Horizon Tutoring Services were also in attendance providing information regarding low cost tutoring services for students. Papa John’s Pizza provided lunch for the students to energize themselves while they enjoyed themselves in the park’s playground.

“Education plays an important role in being successful. It’s not always easy to stay motivated but putting your best foot forward is essential to reaching your goals,” says Floyd Mayweather, Director of the Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation. “I encourage all parents to stay involved with their children’s studies and school activities because they play a huge role in each child’s success.”
“As Nevada continues to battle to improve the education system, it’s even more crucial that we as a community come together to do everything we can to help provide resources and a sense of confidence to the children as they embark on a new school year, says Nicole Craig, President of the Floyd Mayweather Jr Foundation.
We would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to our staff, volunteers, fighters, sponsors, and community sponsors in their collective efforts to continue the success of our annual Back-2-School Giveaway.
This event is held annually to assist students and families with the intention of making a positive impact and benefitting the community as a whole. To get involved with The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation for future events visit: http://tfmjf.org/connect/.
