Back to School Festival for Watauga County Children

Did you know 26% of the Watauga County population live below the poverty level? 40% of Watauga County kids are enrolled in free or reduced lunch, an all time high.

The Quiet Givers Organization has teamed up with area businesses to host a back to school festival. The festival will be held at the Armory on August 10, 2013. There are over 100 kids from Watauga County signed up to attend this festival and are expecting much more. They will be offering school supplies, haircuts, pajamas and a book, jeans, and gift cards for kids to go back to school shopping at Goodwill.

    Also, we have other collection efforts going on at Goodwill – bring your thrift store items to them and tell them if is for the B2SF and they will give us gift cards in exchange. The Watauga County Library is collecting gently used clothing (especially for sizes 4T- Juniors) and school supplies.
