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

by Joyce Meyer Ministries - posted July 29, 2014

  • The St. Louis Dream Center will provide backpacks to families
  • Saturday, Aug. 2, from 11 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. at the St. Louis Dream Center
  • Event will include free food, health exams, haircuts and entertainment

(ST. LOUIS) Thousands of St. Louis residents will come together Saturday, Aug. 2, for the St. Louis Dream Center’s annual Back 2 School Blast. From 11 a.m. to 2:15 p.m., families can receive free backpacks for school. Doctors and dentists will also be on-site to provide free school physicals and dental exams. This event will offer a variety of entertainment for the whole family, including rides, games, haircuts and a clothing boutique.

For many families in St. Louis, the start of a new school year is stressful. Thousands of kids in St. Louis cannot afford the backpacks and school supplies they need for the new school year. The Dream Center has seen this need and understands the importance of making sure kids have the necessities. “So many of these kids don’t attend school the first few weeks because they don’t have what they need,” Alex Bryant, director of the St. Louis Dream Center, said. “Making ends meet can be a real struggle, and we hope the event will meet the tangible needs of many and bring hope to the community.”

This is the fourteenth year the St. Louis Dream Center has hosted the Back 2 School Blast. This event kicks off many of the Dream Center’s other outreaches that take place throughout the year. Saturday’s activities take place from 11 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. at the St. Louis Dream Center, 4324 Margaretta Ave., St. Louis, MO 63115.
