Our annual Back 2 School Bash is our kick-off to the school year, featuring carnival-style games, great food, and plenty of school supplies! Students enrolled in our programs, as well as new friends from our community, enjoy an evening of celebrating a new school year and all the hope, excitement, and joy that brings!

We give away thousands of supplies, serve hundreds of meals, and run dozens of games at our Back 2 School Bash. This only happens because of the generosity of our larger community of volunteers and donors. Check out how YOU can be a part of making the 2019 Back 2 School Bash a success!

Sending ~200 child home with school supplies for the new year takes the efforts and generosity of many people! You can sign up to sponsor one of our Fortress students’ school supply needs, or simply donate general school supplies!
