Much gratitude to our friends at Digital Entertainment Group (DEG), who came out this past weekend for a Back-to-School event.
The Digital Entertainment Group supports new and existing forms of digital media entertainment, creating a community for major movie studios and other content suppliers, consumer electronics marketers, distribution platforms and technology partners to collaborate on moving the industry forward.
Thanks to the hard work of their volunteers, 300 South L.A. and Watts middle and high schoolers will get backpacks filled with back-to-school essentials and encouraging, affirming hand-made cards to launch them into a successful new school year.
