Thousands of backpacks for schoolchildren donated at charity event

The 13th Annual Park Potomac Ice Cream Social for Charity featured a parade with police cars, fire trucks, vintage cars, pom poms and former Washington football greats Dexter Manley in as Grand Marshal of the event. The purpose 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 region, organized the event. Here’s a look at Saturday’s festivities.
