The Annual Back-to-School Bash will take place at Huntington North High School, 450 MacGahan St., Huntington IN on Saturday, July 29 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event will be held rain or shine.
This community-wide event is for all families to kick off the new school year and serves students entering kindergarten through twelfth grade to enable them to begin each school year with a positive, fun-filled day where they will have the opportunity to receive school supplies, clothing, new tennis shoes, socks, headphones, winter hats and gloves, immunizations provided by Ronald McDonald House, lunch and haircuts on site (as time permits). All of this is provided free to each student*.
Other activities planned are the National Guard obstacle course, bounce houses, hands-on experiences with Huntington City Police and Fire Departments, an HCCSC bus, Huntington County Sheriff’s Department and Parkview ambulance. For the parents, they will have a trailer called Hidden in Plain Sight. They will also have various community organizations and resources available for families to engage with and experience what the community has to offer.
This event is hosted by the Indiana Family Care Center in partnership with Huntington County Community School Corporation (HCCSC), and almost 40 other non-profit organizations, local businesses and churches.
