Sponsors, Donations Needed for Garner Back to School Bash

Donations and sponsors are need for the annual Back to School Bash to supply at-risk students with school supplies.
Now in its fifth year, the Back to School Bash helps hundreds of Garner area families who need assistance to provide basic school supplies for their children each year. The students play games where they earn tickets they can redeem in the School Store for the school supplies they need. Students are also invited to pick out books from our Book Booth to expand their personal libraries.
“The Back to School Bash ensures that local students, many of whom are at high-poverty schools, are able to start the school year with the supplies they need to learn and be successful,” said Tony Lucas, co-chair and founder of the Back to School Bash. “The Bash is about our community coming together to support our local students.”
There are opportunities to be involved on many levels, including sponsorships, hosting a school supply drive at work, making a financial contribution, donating school supplies, or volunteering. To learn more about how to get involved, visit www.b2sb.net or email info@b2sb.net.
Donations will be accepted beginning June 18 through August 11 at Garner United Methodist Church.
For those unable to shop for supplies, but would like to make a financial contribution, checks can be made payable to Garner United Methodist Church with Back to School Bash written in the memo line. A $25 donation will cover the cost of supplies for one student.
Local businesses and organizations can get involved by contributing funding at a number of different sponsorship levels. Visit www.b2sb.net/sponsors/ or contact Carlene Lucas at sponsor@b2sb.net for more information, or call 919-800-8787.
The Back to School Bash will be on Saturday, August 12 from 10 am to 2 pm at Garner United Methodist Church.
