Help Make the Back-to-School Bash a Success

Before school starts again this fall, the City of North Liberty and a group of community partners are working to make sure every kid in our community has what they need to have a good start to the school year. The inaugural Back 2 School Bash will be held on Friday, Aug. 17, 2018, from 2 to 5 p.m. in North Liberty’s Penn Meadows Park. This kick-off to the school year provides free school supplies, socks, and underwear, toiletries, shoes, haircuts and more to kids accompanied by an adult.

To make this volunteer-driven event a success, we need your help.
