Join us on Aug. 22 to kick off the 2019-2020 school year.

We will be giving out backpacks pre-packed with school supplies to kids in need.

There will be carnival games, employment resources, and back to school resources.

The event will be at Victoria Freeman Park.

We will start giving out tickets for backpacks at 9am and will distribute backpacks starting at 10 a.m.

Disclosure: We will only hand out tickets for the amount of backpacks we have. You must have a ticket to get a backpack. Your child MUST be present to get a backpack and there will be no exceptions. Your child must be enrolled in school K-12 to receive a backpack. There will not be everything on the supply list in the backpacks, only the basic supplies. We will pick out the backpacks for the child based on age/gender.
