The Backpack Bash is an annual collaborative effort involving more than 70 local churches, businesses, nonprofits, and school and government partners to support thousands of families across El Paso County. Every student receives a free backpack with new school supplies*, and families get to interact with all kinds of organizations built to support them year-round. With 6 locations across the Pikes Peak region, families are only a short drive from a one-stop-shop to get access to everything they need for a great school year.
*School districts across Colorado Springs vary in their provision of school supplies for K-12 students. Supplies may vary by location, depending on the host school district’s policies to provide supplies to students when they return to the classroom.
