Back to School Blast

Helping Students In Need Help a Child Be Ready for School

Every year we come together to support kids across Central Indiana with two big things they need to get the school year started off right, a backpack full of school supplies & new shoes. Join us for our annual Back to School Blast Event as we work together to provide 1,500 pairs of shoes and pre-filled backpacks for students at the Grace Care Center.

A backpack with supplies can be sponsored online for $20 and shoes for $10 throughout June & July. These backpacks and new shoes equip kids to begin the school year prepared and confident.


Help us Stuff the Backpacks!

$20 = Dignity. Self-confidence. Belonging. So, What's In the Bag?

A fully-stocked backpack of needed school supplies are a bonus, too! Help kids in our community start the school year off with confidence and determination. 

Here's what we stuff in each backpack (Help us pack the supplies!):

  • Binders (1-inch minimum)
  • Colored Pencils (12 count)
  • Crayons (24 count)
  • Dry Erase Markers (4/pack)
  • Eraser
  • Glue Sticks
  • Highlighter
  • Index Cards- 100 pack
  • Markers- Washable 10-count
  • Notebooks- Spiral 70 sheets
  • Paper- filler 250 sheets
  • Pencil Pouch
  • Pencils
  • Pens- 10 Pack
  • Ruler- 12-inch
  • Scissors- Safety

$10 = Confidence for a Child Who Doesn't Love New Shoes!

A simple donation of $10 will buy a pair of shoes for a child in need. You can help ensure a student has the confidence and self-worth needed to start the fall semester off right!
