IT’S ALMOST TIME TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL –
HERE’S HOW THE CITY OF IRVINGTON IS HELPING THE COMMUNITY!
The summer of 2023 has been the hottest on record. The kids of Meade County, Kentucky, enjoyed some much-needed rest and relaxation over the summer months, but now, it’s almost time to go back to school.
However, due to the economic situation, many families simply can’t afford all the school supplies required to start the school year. The city of Irvington has highlighted that problem. It conducts a Back To School Bash to assist local schools and education. Let’s talk about what it is and how you can help!
What’s the Back to School Bash all about?
As stated, rising inflation makes it difficult for many parents to afford the school supplies necessary for proper study. That’s why the City of Irvington is conducting the Back To School Bash on August 5, 2023, at 12-4 Est Old HWY 79 Irvington, Kentucky. It’s the first annual event of its kind and ensures that kids get free school supplies and enjoy a fun-filled day.
The attractions include bouncy castles and live music for children of all ages to enjoy. Foam and bubble machines and other games are also promised. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, in fact. The timings are from 12-4 EST. The core aim of the event is to collect school supplies and distribute them to children who need them.
