Free School Supplies and Backpacks for St. Louis Kids at Back 2 School Blast

by Joyce Meyer Ministries - posted July 23, 2013

  • The St. Louis Dream Center provides backpacks and school supplies to local children
  • Event will include free food, haircuts, and entertainment

(St. Louis, MO) Thousands of St. Louis residents will gather Saturday for the St. Louis Dream Center’s 13th Annual Back 2 School Blast. During the day, families receive free backpacks and school supplies, as well as a give-away with shoes/socks and blankets while supplies last. This carnival-like event offers a variety of entertainment for the whole family, with activities that include rides, games, inflatables, face painting, a visit from the fire department and more.

“So many of these kids don’t attend school the first few weeks because they don’t have what they need,” says Alex Bryant, Director of the St. Louis Dream Center. “We want to provide them with the necessities so they can hit the ground running in the new school year.” This event kicks off many of the Dream Center’s other outreaches that take place throughout the year.

“It’s a big help,” says Anthony Stokes, a local resident who attended the Back 2 School Blast last year with his five kids. “Basically, it’s like a jump start to the school year.”

Event Details:
11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the St. Louis Dream Center
4324 Margaretta Avenue
St. Louis, MO 63115
