Being a hero wasn't all tights, capes, and saving people from aliens, evildoers, bad guys, and misguided attempts to change the world. Oh no, it was far more than that because what good was a hero if there wasn't an element of community outreach involved? The community was important and not only because heroes had a duty but because it was from the community where the next heroic generation would rise. Jesse had a lot of ideas about nurturing and fostering the world around her, but few of them ever came out quite right.
Except for the Back To School Extravaganza. THAT worked out swimmingly and without fail every year. It was a mutli-pronged approach. There had been a school supplies drive for those who might be struggling to get supplies in an economic downturn. There was the registration fair where she enlisted heroes to help make sure that parents were able to get their children registered in the proper schools. She'd put together a fundraiser for a couple of the schools that needed new books and things and there had also been a clothes drive to help make sure every kid had a chance to have a new pair of shoes and a new outfit to start the year with. It had been hard work, but now was the fun part: the party. She'd coordinated a big cookout and people from all over were invited to come. Food, games, a few prizes...it was going to be awesome.
...except so far she was the only heroic type there to set up.
"Ok, I'm fast but geez people...." Jesse grumbled a little. Hungry people were gonna show up soon and there was stuff to do.
