Back to School Bash

June 1 – August 7, 2021

Mile High United Way wants to ensure the kids and families in our community have everything they need to start the school year right!

The average back to school supply list can cost over $100, which is not feasible for many families in Metro Denver. Our annual Back to School Bash provides school age children with their school supply list and parents and teachers with additional resources. Join us by running a supply drive with your friends or co-workers or by volunteering your time! Together, we can make a difference in the lives of students in our community.
