We set our goal. 35.

35 Backpacks. 

Back2School is an effort by Ace in the City to help prepare local students for the school year ahead. Every August at the Back2School Bash, Ace distributes hundreds of backpacks (filled with supplies) into the hands of students in a way that preserves the dignity of both students and parents. It’s a day filled with free haircuts, inflatables, food, and tons of smiles and laughter.

UC is helping in a few ways, one of which, is committing to 20 backpacks, collecting now until Sunday, August 5th! 

These backpacks will then be filled with quality, brand-specific school supplies and sold at the Bash at a reduced cost. All proceeds from the event will directly benefit the ongoing work of Ace in the City.

Where Do I Bring 'Em?
Bring your backpacks (empty!) to UC anytime between now and August 5th. (Look over there -->) is a list of suggested backpacks for your trip to the store.

EXTRA: Throw in another 20. Dollars.
If you slip a $20 bill in the backpack, you have just "filled" the backpack with supplies. 100% of your $20 pays for the supplies to fill each of these backpacks.
