Back to School Bash

June 1 – July 25, 2020

Whether remote or in the classroom, students will need supplies to make the most of their school year. In partnership with the Denver Broncos, Mile High United Way wants to ensure the kids and families in our community have everything they need to start the school year right!

Our annual Back to School Bash provides school age children with their school supply list and parents and teachers with additional resources. This year, our Back to School Bash has gone virtual! Join us by running a school virtual 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.

Get Involved

Run a Virtual Supply Drive

The average back to school supply list can cost over $100, which is not feasible for many families in Metro Denver. You can help families cover these costs by running a virtual supply drive! Help provide backpacks and supplies for over 400 students in the community! It’s easy, fun, and makes a huge impact.

Learn More

You can support students by volunteering virtually! Write messages of encouragement for teachers, create at-home learning activities, provide translation help and more! We also have in-person volunteer opportunities to help with set-up and distribution of the supplies.
