Spirit of Giving’s
Annual Back to School Bash
Join us on Saturday, August 1st 2020 in Putting Kids First! Helps thousands of local children begin the school year with the tools and confidence they need to succeed. In these unprecedented and uncertain times, more families and children will undoubtedly suffer economically. Now, more than ever, it is critical to provide our children a sense of stability, security and support as we navigate the waters of our “new normal”.
Did you know it costs about $685 to prepare a child for school each year?
As you can imagine, it can be very difficult for a low-income family to provide their children the tools they need to learn. Spirit of Giving’s Back to School Bash brings together over 60 local nonprofit agencies and over 50 community partners to help thousands of economically disadvantaged children and their families prepare for academic success.
Our Back to School Bash is an all-encompassing event day that provides Local Children with:
- Backpacks with grade appropriate school supplies
- School Uniforms
- School Physicals
- Lunch and snacks
- Dental screenings
- Vision Screenings
- And much more…
At the event, students are paired with a volunteer personal shopper to assist them in selecting their own backpack and supplies. Numerous Community resources are available to the families. Boca Raton Regional Hospital partners with us to hold their Family Health Carnival at the Bash, featuring health resources, education, and screenings for the whole family.
