Neighborhood Back to School Rallies set for Aug. 3
Lexington's 2019 Neighborhood Back to School Rallies are Saturday, Aug. 3. Elementary, middle, and high school students can receive free backpacks and basic school supplies thanks to generous sponsors. Highlights will include:
Registration, lawn games, inflatables, crafts, etc., from 9 to 10:30 a.m.;
Free food and resources, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.; and
Distribution of backpacks, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Each year the YMCA of Central Kentucky, in partnership with Fayette County Public Schools, various sponsors, and community partners, hosts these rallies, and each neighborhood distributes supplies for all grade levels. The Y has been the central coordinator of this event since 2011. Since that time, more than 42,000 children have been served.
