This year’s Back-To-School Bash will be held on Thursday, August 17th, from 10am to 1pm in the 7th Street Plaza parking lot. We are preparing to distribute 750+ back packs filled with school supplies to students in grades K-12.
There are multiple ways to get involved. We’re looking for individual supporters as well as churches and organizations who might want to purchase back packs or school supplies or provide a monetary donation for the Urban Mission to purchase back packs or school supplies.
We’re also inviting churches, organizations, agencies, and businesses to set up a table at the Bash as a reminder to area children (and their parents) of the many resources available to them throughout the community.
If you’d like to volunteer at our Back to School Bash, we will need help setting up and tearing down as well as distributing bookbags to area children. To find out more or to sign up to volunteer, please call us at 740.282.8010.
