Emancipation Day Celebration - Quincy, Florida


Emancipation Day Celebration - May 19 & 20, 2017
Quincy, Florida

Events and Schedule

The Organization for Learning and Human Development (OLHD) has embarked on a challenge to provide programs which economically, educationally and culturally enrich our communities. With this goal in mind, the OLHD sponsored the Annual 20th of May Celebration combined with the Memorial Day weekend where more than 1500 meals were served free of charge to those in attendance. The OLHD has given Thanksgiving Baskets to five local communities. More than 200 families were provided with a turkey and trimmings at Thanksgiving. The OLHD also entered into partnership with G.O.O.D. K.I.D.S., a non-profit charitable and educational organization that recognizes the need for positive guidance and aspiration in Gadsden County youth. This year the two organizations targeted three of our local communities in Quincy, FL to help kids with back-to-school supplies including back packs, pens, pencils, paper, tablets, calculators, rulers, crayons, tissues, folders, dictionaries, etc. We served approximately 400 school age kids (grade Pre-K thru 12).
