Back to School Bash: Get Involved



WFTV9 Family Connection and Star 94.5 is proud to be supporting Hope Now International's annual FREE Back to School Bash. The event has been moved from the Amway Center to the Citrus Bowl this year. The event will be held on Saturday, August 10th from 8am-Noon. Last year more than 8,000 local students received free backpacks full of school supplies along with free haircuts, immunizations and health screenings. We need your help! You can sponsor a student for just $10! We want to thank the community for the overwhelming response the past week when the event was in jeopardy. We are happy to announce the event will go on!

We are thankful for so many companies who have stepped up to help out last minute. Those companies include Office Depot Foundation, Nemours Children's Hospital, Costco and many more. Many local individuals have also donated to help.
