Back to School Bash

WE CAN help every child in Ellis County be prepared to learn. TOGETHER.

Many families in our district need help to provide basic back to school supplies needed for their student’s success, which is why each year, Manna House orchestrates the delivery of supplies for more than 2600 students in our area.  August will be here before you know it and that means paper, pencils, pens, notebooks, backpacks, and more! We invite you to help Manna House make our annual Mayor’s Back to School Bash a success.

This free event is open to all MISD students and will include rides, face painting, candy cannon, water slides, games, and local talent showcase  – to name a few attractions. 

Beginning at 4pm we will have food trucks and services like free haircuts and vision screening. We will end the day with a fireworks display after dark!

Manna House relies on the support of our community which so generously supports our missions through sponsorships, financial and material donations, and gifts of personal time.  By donating $65, you can provide a complete school supply kit for an MISD student in need of our support.  Donations must be received by August 1st to ensure all students receive their supplies before classes begin.

DONATE 

 

The Back to School Bash day of activities is open to all.  Receiving supplies does not require registration or proof of eligibility.  The number of students in need of assistance are submitted by school counselors from the service area and supplies are provided based on stated need.  Distribution of the supplies is done at the student’s registered school and parents are notified when the program is active.
