Back-2-School Bash 2022

Elizabethton Back-2-School Bash 2023

On Monday, July 31, 2023, we will host our annual Elizabethton Back-2-School Bash at Elizabethton High School. This event aims to provide needed school supplies and access to community resources to local students and families. We want our students to be prepared for the upcoming school year and support community involvement throughout our schools. Over the years we have provided thousands of students with school supplies, free meals, and access to local organizations through community support.  With your help, we can again work together to meet this need in our community.

In order to provide needed support to our community's children, it will take $25 per child. Our goal is to reach the sponsorship of 1000 children. Our goal is to partner with as many Elizabethton organizations as possible to meet this need. We also want our community to know that you love and support local students, so we have outlined recognition opportunities below based on sponsorship levels.

Previous Back to School Bash Events 2019:

The 5th annual ECS Back-2-School Bash will feature 1,000 free backpacks full of school supplies, as well as inflatables, obstacle courses, lunch, giveawaPolice Chief Jason Shaw leads kids through the EPD Obstacle Coursey items, health and education resources and back to school information direct from principals and teachers. The event will be held at the Citizens Bank Stadium at Elizabethton High School or inside EHS if it rains. This free event is open to families in Elizabethton, Carter County, and the surrounding area.

The event is planned in partnership with Elizabethton City Schools, Carter County Health Department, and the Elizabethton Police Department. Each year, community support makes this possible with thousands in donations, thousands in attendance, and dozens of partners attending to share resources. This is a family-friendly event, but we ask that you leave your four-legged friends at home, unless they are certified service animals. You do not need to preregister for this event, and we typically have plenty of backpacks and supplies for all attendees. Thank you
