Juneteenth - Celebrating Black Culture and Achievement

Body

What is Juneteenth?

Juneteenth, commemorated annually on June 19, is in recognition of the ending of slavery in the United States.  Since 1865, Black families and communities have come together to celebrate culture and achievement in honor of this day.  Like EOB parties, the festivities have always included singing, dancing, most importantly food!

In these uncertain times, EOB reaffirms Juneteenth’s story of unyielding hope and cultural legacy of elevating self-worth.  We know the transformational power of a community celebration and our mission is centered on this value by providing personalized birthday parties for children and families experiencing homelessness.

So, to all our EOB #hopehealers, we invite you to drop a #EOBJuneteenth on your social media posts, and highlight EOB’s work to honor Black families and celebrate a child’s own personal holiday.
