Voyage's Annual Events
Yam Jam is a collaborative community event and fun day serving the Northside Wilmington community. Every year, over 10,000 pounds of sweet potatoes are distributed to the community along with nutritious produce. At the 2019 event, over 300 members of the community came out and received their yams, chili, and partook in games, face painting, a live DJ, bounce house, and learned about other organizations serving the Wilmington community!
Back to School Drive
The Back to School Drive is a Voyage Community Council initiative to provide Voyage families and the Northside community with school supplies to give them the opportunity to be the most successful students they can possibly be! The goal was to ensure our community's youth were prepared for a successful school year! 50 backpacks were stuffed and served to local Northside youth. Students received free school supplies including binders, notebooks, pencils, and more!
The VOYAGE Community Council hosted its first community cookout at the Hemenway Center on September 21st, 2019. Hot dogs and refreshments were served to members of the community and Northside community members were provided the opportunity to register to vote!
Annual Easter Egg Hunt
VOYAGE hosted its very first Easter Egg Hunt on March 28, 2021 at 10 ST Park in collaboration with P.U.S.H. Solutions. The day prior, community partners and members gathered at the Hemenway Center to decorate the eggs and handout meal boxes. Northside family and friends were able to enjoy hot dogs, refreshments, and an egg-citing Easter egg hunt!
