Back 2 School Bash

The Back 2 School Bash was established in 2005. It began as an idea of four Drake students who wanted to contribute to their new found community.  Our mission is to collaborate with communities/corporations and consolidate resources in order to inspire youth to continue in their educational endeavors and build upon their future careers.

 

During this one day event, over 1000 students will walk away with school supplies. It also features a talent show, basketball tournament, carnival, food vendors and information from various community organizations.

 

The Back 2 School Bash is filled with excitement. Below are a few of the activites:

 

School Supply Giveaway

Over 1000 students will receive school supplies. Bags are classified in 3 categories including grades K-5, 5-8, and 9-12.

 

Carnival

Inflatable games, field games, face painting, and music are amongst the activities in the carnival. Students will be rewarded play money for participating in the activities. The money can be used for cotton candy, snow cones, and/or prizes.
