The organisers of the event are encouraging those who wish to contribute items such as food and games to get in touch by emailing forfathersproject@gmail.com (with ‘Your Contribution’ as the subject).

As kids from Freebrook will be going back to school in the weeks following the cookout there’ll also be a Back 2 School Drive where you can donate essential school items from Freebrook students (notebooks, crayons, pens & pencils etc).
