Back to School Bash | August 11, 2021








Perry County Job and Family Services (PCJFS) will hold its annual Back-to-School Bash on Wednesday, August 11.


The Back-to-School Bash is always a time for PCJFS to say a very special “Thank You!” to everyone helping to make the our event a successful, supportive one for children and families.


This year the Bash will help 667 pre-registered children get ready for school with a backpack of supplies, a school spirit hoodie, tennis shoes and more. Participants will receive a voucher for personal hygiene products and a haircut.


Fraternal and faith-based organizations, and other community service partners will be present either through their donations or in-person sharing the support they provide for families throughout the year. Perry County Health Department will also be on site to provide COVID vaccinations.


We’ve pivoted from our traditional community event to a socially distanced drive through event, but we will still be connecting the generosity and support of our community to children and families hoping for the best school year possible.


More than ever before, the 2021 Back-to-School Bash would not have been possible without the generosity and support of people like you. Together, we were able to encourage, inspire, and prepare the children of Perry County with the tools necessary to be successful during the school year.
