Get ready for this year’s Back 2 School Blast! We will need your help to gear up 300 inner-city children for the 2018-2019 school year!
On Saturday, August 4, 2018, 300 children will receive backpacks, school supplies, and gift cards, to prepare them to start the school year on the right foot. We will need your help to gear up children from West Palm Beach, Riviera Beach and Boyton Beach. Check back to this page in June for details on how you can donate time and supplies to help us love, equip and empower these amazing inner-city youth!
How can you help? We are looking for individuals, businesses, and/or churches to sponsor a child’s complete school supply wishlist. The estimated cost for a backpack and supplies per child is $75. Please email B2SB@urbanyouthimpact.com with your name, number of children you would like to sponsor and your contact information. A child’s school supply wishlist will be emailed to you by mid-July. All filled backpacks can be dropped off at UYI between July 30-August 2, between 9am-5pm.
The Back 2 School Blast fulfills Urban Youth Impact’s mission to love, equip and empower inner-city youth by providing resources to ensure inner-city youth are starting the year off on more equal footing with their peers. Your support helps minimize inequities many from the inner-city feel so they can focus on what is most important – learning!
