Gregory Davis is a dreamer. He believes that the Rainier Beach neighborhood is a great place, with many positive attributes. He believes by improving the schools, community safety, relationships with young people, and strengthening ties to local area businesses Rainier Beach will be able to move forward in becoming a stronger community. To that end, his organization, The Rainier Beach Community Empowerment Coalition has sponsored an annual Back to School Bash event that seeks to provide free back packs to local school age children. Today marked the tenth year of the BTSB (Back to School Bash). We were at Beer Sheva Park, where we provided approximately five hundred students with free backpacks and school supplies. In addition to the backpack giveway, there were more than twenty local vendors who sponsored resources table with information about positive activities going on in the Rainer Beach community. There were people of several different ethnic backgrounds in attendance, and all had a great time together. Surely, Mr. Davis is doing his part to keep the dream alive. I salute Gregory Davis and Rainier Beach Coalition for a job well done.
