It is our mission to meet as many needs as possible in a single day for area school children and families as they head back to school.
For more than 10 years, Back 2 School Giveaway has devoted its energy to passionately advocating for children in South East Idaho. The Giveaway strives to bring together as many people and resources possible in one location so families with school age children can receive every resource possible as they prepare for another school year. This year the event will be more entertaining that ever before as we have restructured it to make wait in a line more interesting, lines more efficient, and plenty of fun for the students.
We are getting closer to the 2018 Back 2 School Giveaway and the event is growing at a rapid pace. We have raised our goal to 1500 students and are fully expecting 5500 people in attendance. We have added multiple media organizations and large corporate sponsors as well as dozens of local businesses. I realize that business owners in our community get requests for sponsorships on a daily basis and the process of deciding what to support can be a very difficult one. This event has been tailored to help ensure that the community knows who sponsors the event and which businesses to patronage. While I am confident that this year's Giveaway will be a huge success we would love to have your organization on board as a sponsor.
Parents/Guardian must be present. The line usually starts the night before so come by at least 8am if you would like to be guaranteed supplies. We provide beverages and snacks to those waiting in line, but please come prepared with chairs, blankets, and extra snacks for your children. The many on-site vendors have hundreds of dollars worth of services and items to give away so please take time to visit each booth!
Over 150 individuals from all throughout the community came together to volunteer at last years event. From parking attendants to registration aids volunteers served in shifts and had a chance to share love with their neighbors in the community. In order to meet as many needs as possible in a single day for children going back to school and their families around the area, we need help from our incredible community. Help make a difference by volunteering, sponsoring or donating!
