Back 2 School Alliance

Back 2 School Party

The Back 2 School Alliance is dedicated to ensuring that all students can begin school ready to learn on DAY ONE. Through the efforts of hundreds of volunteers, the Alliance provides free school supplies to over 1600 students within District 87 and Unit 5 schools. The supply-stuffed backpacks are distributed at a party that encourages and rewards completion of school registration and immunizations, and offers awareness of resources in our community...all while having a great time!


The 18th annual Back 2 School Party will be held on Thursday, August 9 from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m., with a "Fast Track" lane available for backpack distribution ONLY (no party, food or resource fair) from 5 p.m. - 6 p.m.  Volunteers will be needed to sort, count and pack supplies prior to the event, and to set-up, staff and tear down the party.

Other ways to get involved...
We would never be able to coordinate this event if it weren't for the generous donations from the community!

If your organization, business or church would like to host a supply drive or make a donation, send an email to [email protected].
