Back 2 School Basics 2020 was a HUGE success! With the help of our donors, we served 750 children from Park City, the Confederated Tribes of the Goshute Reservation, and Wasatch county.
Each child received a $100 gift card they used to shop at participating Outlets Park City stores. These participating stores offered additional discounts so each dollar spent was maximized. On average, each participant was able to purchase 8 items per child! After shopping, families returned to event headquarters loaded with bags full of new clothing and smiles on their faces. Each child was then able to select pre-bagged school supplies and a backpack to complete the back to school package!
By spacing out the large number of shoppers over three days, we were able to maintain a safe, socially-distant event.
With so much uncertainty and stress surrounding the start of school this year, we are extremely grateful to have provided relief to families who are already dealing with more complications than usual.
THANK YOU to the many volunteers who checked in families, sorted receipts and gift cards, helped families select school supplies and backpacks, and did all the pre-event work!
We are EXTREMELY grateful to all the individuals, families, and corporate entities that make this event possible year after year!
We’d like to say a big THANK YOU to our sponsors!
