Back to School Bash 2017
Supplies and backpacks will be distributed to Charlottesville and Albemarle schools based on pre-registered numbers.
Parents and children can pick up their supplies at open houses for Charlottesville City and Albemarle County on Monday August 21st.
We are sorry, but supplies will not be distributed in surrounding counties.
The African American Pastor's Council will sponsor the 'Back to School Bash' at the Sprint Pavilion on Saturday, Aug. 19th this year.
Last year any student registered in the Charlottesville City or Albemarle County Public School system was given free supplies, which included things like book bags and haircuts.
Lashema Jackson, whose kids are in the city school system, says the 'Bash' was a big help. "With the budget that we have that was very good. They gave out free items today so that helped." says Jackson.
Superintendent Rosa Atkins says it was a community effort to get kids what they need for another year.
