Imagine Rainier Beach with youth who are healthy, happy, full of hope and prepared for the future. Can you imagine youth who access the educational opportunities and neighborhood resources that improve quality of life for themselves and their families? We strongly believe this can be realized through a neighborhood collaboration effort and your support is needed!
On Saturday, August 12, 2017, 12:00p.m. – 4:00p.m. the Rainier Beach Action Coalition (RBAC) formally Rainier Beach Community Empowerment Coalition (RBCEC) and Rainier Beach Moving Forward (RBMF) in partnership with residents and dozens of organizations from the neighborhood will sponsor the 15th Annual Rainier Beach Back 2 School Bash. The purpose of this event is the same it has been since the first one in 2003 – to affirm the greatness within each child and address social barriers they face to learning.
This event has a rich history of strengthening neighborhood support for education, providing services to families in need and generating involvement in neighborhood projects that improve quality of life. Our goal is to provide students and families with backpacks, school supplies and information about neighborhood and educational resources, food, clothing and entertainment. We invite you to join with residents, social service agencies, faith-based organizations, and local businesses to make the Rainier Beach Back2School Bash a success.
We welcome monetary donations, in-kind contributions, the willingness to have a resource table, sponsorship, a backpack & supply drive, and/or volunteers. For specific details, please refer to the enclosed Participation Form, Sponsorship Level and Save the Date Flyer.
