Details
Event Description: 
The Annual Back to School Back Pack Bash hosted by the Greater Phoenix Teen Challenge - This is a free community outreach and we will once again be passing out 1000+ backpacks filled with necessary school supplies to the under-privileged youth of inner-city Phoenix. This is not a fundraiser, it’s a free event for the community. Last year we were able to give away over 1,000 backpacks and served over 2,000 meals to less fortunate children. Help us give back to these kids, sharing the emphasis on the necessity of an education, by donating towards the school supplies for the backpacks.
