The Back 2 School Alliance is comprised of representatives from schools, non-profits and businesses that work closely with the school districts to determine the need and number of qualified students. The Alliance solicits for monetary and in-kind donations from local businesses, churches and organizations and then rewards students with a Back 2 School Party in August to celebrate completion of school registration and distribute supplies. Our Goals: - To provide backpacks filled with school-mandated supplies for all qualified students in the Bloomington-Normal public school districts for grades K-12. - To create excitement and energy for students entering school. - To provide informational resources for parents to help better their lives.
