Back 2 School Festival



You will be offered school supplies to help lighten the burden of back-to-school shopping. The committee does their best to supply as many supplies as possible from backpacks, to pencils, erasers, and paper. You need it, they probably have it!

NOTE: The committee cannot guarantee that your child will get everything on their supplies lists. You may need to purchase additional items based on your child’s personal school list. Check your child’s teacher’s supplies list (usually available at their school) after you leave the festival to see what additional items you may need to purchase yourself.  If there are items on your child’s list that you cannot afford and the festival cannot readily supply, the team will take your name and school name and do their best to get these items to you within the first week of school through your school social worker.


Professional Stylists will be on hand to offer school kids a fresh new look!  If you haven’t seen the High School Cosmetology Room than you are in for a big surprise.  Kids will receive a new haircut compliments of local professional stylists. Please consider coloring a thank you card to give as a tip to these gracious volunteers!


Local agencies will be on hand to offer information about beneficial programs and services.


Mellow Mushroom graciously provides free lunch from 11 am – 1 pm or until they run out. Typical lunch consists of a sandwich, chips, fruit and a drink.


Information Booths will also host activities for your family to enjoy. Come enjoy festivities and get into the back-to-school spirit!

You are welcome to take what you need but please be aware of others in need.  If you do not need a ruler, please don’t take a ruler and so on. This will help to ensure that we are able to reach all children.
