Northern Nevada Dream Center to host Back to School Bash and school supply giveaway

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) – As students head back to school this week, many of them will be without the tools they need to have a successful academic year. That’s why the Northern Nevada Dream Center is hosting its fourth annual Back to School Bash where they’ll be giving away over 1,000 backpacks filled with school supplies, free groceries for families, and other goodies!

Executive Director Susan Sorenson and Director of Programs and Volunteers Bethany Herzing stopped by Morning Break to talk about the deeper purpose behind the event.

The event is free and open to students in grades K-12, who are enrolled in the Douglas or Carson City school districts. Backpacks will be distributed in order of arrival and students must be present. NNDC, Lifepoint Church and Shine A Jesus Church have partnered for the Back to School Bash.

It will be Saturday, August 20th at Fuji Park (601 Old Clear Creek Road) in Carson City.

The Carson City Lions Club will offer free visual screenings during the Bash and Western Nevada Safe Routes to School program, the mascot Safety Sally will be on hand to hand out safety equipment and gear.

Families will receive a gift from Ashlee’s Toy Closet and Kona Ice will provide treats for students. Firefighters from the Carson City Fire Department will offer guided tours of their fire truck and the Greater Nevada Credit Union G-Bus will be there with giveaways and games for the kids.
