Back to School Bash 2024

Back to School Bash
May - August 2024

Help Students Start the School Year Off Right!

Join Mile High United Way in providing backpacks and school supplies to hundreds of students across Metro Denver at our annual Back to School Bash. The average back-to-school supply list can cost over $200, which is not feasible for many families. Join us in helping students, parents and teachers start the school year off right.

Now through July 26, Mile High United Way is collecting supplies, which will be distributed to families in August. Get involved by running a supply drive with your friends or coworkers, making a monetary donation or volunteering!

How to Get Involved:


Sponsorship opportunities are available! Contact volunteer@unitedwaydenver.org to learn more.
