The Back 2 School Festival was founded on the belief that every child deserves to start the school year feeling confident and prepared. A child that feels confident is more likely to succeed. We provide school supplies, new shoes & socks, backpacks, haircuts, activities, helpful information and healthy food in an atmosphere of fun, dignity and respect. We offer relief for local parents who are working hard to make ends-meet! We help teachers by providing the tools their students need to succeed. We help any Watauga County families struggling to afford the high costs of sending their children back to school. For more information, consult the organization website.
