A back-to-school event is an excellent opportunity to bring school families and community businesses, churches, and leaders together in a playful, relaxing environment. Not only are community and school families able to connect with each other, but it’s also a great time for families to reconnect too.. Some events may have churches, organizations, and businesses hosting booths for families. Families might be given the opportunity to receive school supplies, a backpack, new shoes, a free haircut, vision and/or dental screenings, food, or visit booths for games, face painting, snacks, and signing up for door prizes. Several businesses could join together to have an open swim time at the city pool. The opportunities for this type of event are endless. The results are happy families, knowing the school and community care about their children and their family unit. Families are likely to leave with excitement for the upcoming school year. Community members serving at the event will leave overwhelmed with blessings from serving the school families.
