Autumn Barnes and Tjnaya Wynn, both 5, smile after getting new backpacks full of school items at E.B. Jordan Homes’ back-to-school party Thursday, Aug. 17. The Wilson Housing Authority and the Resident Council Committees at each of its three main housing areas teamed up to hand out backpacks stuffed with back to school supplies to more than 140 children. Each of the three main housing areas — Whitfield Homes, Forrest Road and E.B. Jordan — held back-to-school bashes complete with food, games and music to celebrate the end of summer and get the students ready to return to class. The backpacks were available to all children living in a housing authority unit. The students range in age from just starting a Head Start program to high school.
