WHEN: Wednesday, August 18, 2021 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

WHERE: The Salvation Army Boston Kroc Center, 650 Dudley Street | Boston, MA 02125

WHAT: This year marks the 10th anniversary of The Salvation Army of MA teaming up with TD Garden's charitable arm, Garden Neighborhood Charities, to host a backpack distribution event that includes fun activities, health and fitness, engaging educational booths and an optional COVID-19 vaccine clinic. All registered students in grades K-12 will receive a backpack filled with grade-appropriate supplies to set them up for a successful school year.

WHY: TD Garden has been providing backpacks filled with supplies and a day filled with fun for Boston-area students for the past ten years. In partnership with the City of Boston and The Salvation Army of MA and with some help from the Boston Bruins Foundation and the Boston Celtics, Garden Neighborhood Charities makes it its mission to provide a fun, encouraging and celebratory atmosphere every year at the Back-To-School Celebration. For students whose families cannot afford supplies, coming to school unprepared can create social and emotional challenges, in addition to putting kids at a disadvantage for learning. This event provides a positive experience while playing a crucial role in the academic and personal lives of children.

*Reminder, all families must pre-register for this event.
