Back to School Fest
August 25, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Community members in support of the children of Henderson County are sponsoring a Back to School Fest. The event is scheduled for Aug. 25, from 10am to 4pm in J. H. Sullivan Park in Hendersonville. This event is being planned as the first in a series of annual events in support of school children. Back to School Fest has an all-volunteer staff, is newly organized, and is pinching every penny to give school supplies, backpacks, and a nutritious meal to the 200 children and their families expected to attend this event. The centerpiece of the event will be a back pack/school supply giveaway, but it will also feature participation of the Hendersonville Police Department, Henderson County Sheriff’s Department, Hendersonville Fire Department, and representatives from various community organizations, Pardee Breast Center, Alzheimer’s Association, Safe Light, Pisgah Legal Services, and local houses of worship and businesses. There will be hot dogs, burgers, salad fixings, beverages, and chips at no charge to all comers. In addition to food offerings, there will be presentations from various community organizations regarding the services they provide, live music, and fun activities for children of all ages. Volunteers, donations of backpacks and school supplies are still needed.
