Shatori Walker-Kimbrough Grants D.C. Family Back-To-School Shopping Spree at Tanger Outlets National Harbor
WASHINGTON, D.C. - On Monday, July 26, Washington Mystics guard Shatori Walker-Kimbrough teamed up with Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation, Delivering Good and Martha's Table "Get Ready 4 School Giveaway," to provide Ra'Chelle Dennis and her three-year old son, Noah, and his classmate Rico, a back-to-school spree at Washington, D.C. Metro Area's upscale Tanger Outlets National Harbor. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Dennis, a hairstylist, and her family faced fiscal hardships and were challenged to find normality in their day-to-day routines. B-Roll footage of today's event can be found here.
"I was happy to be here, happy for the opportunity. It was great today, a great experience," said Walker-Kimbrough. "The boys were great. I'm happy to be back and happy to give back to the community in any way possible."
To celebrate the return of in-person learning for students, Walker-Kimbrough's $500 back-to-school shopping spree, courtesy of Tanger Outlets National Harbor, was one part of the "Get Ready 4 School Giveaway." This safe, socially distanced back-to-school event aims to provide 5,000 D.C. families with all-new, all-free back-to-school clothing, supplies and health and wellness services.
