Brookside Elementary Hosting Mayor’s Backpack Giveaway to Kick Off New School Year

Mark your calendars for Sunday, July 21st from 1:00 to 3:00 PM – Brookside Elementary is the place to be! In partnership with the Mayor’s Latino Advisory Council, the school is hosting the first annual Backpack Giveaway to help local students start the 2024-2025 school year on the right foot.

This free event for Indianapolis families will be packed with fun. Students can pick up a new backpack to get ready for the upcoming year. Snacks and drinks will be provided to fuel the festive atmosphere. Music will fill the air as families connect with each other and with community resources to learn about programs and services available to support them.

All local families are invited to join the celebration at Brookside Elementary School’s gym at 3150 E. 10th St. Let’s come together as a community to give our students an exciting and positive kickoff to the new academic year. See you there on July 21st as we get ready to make 2024-2025 the best school year yet!
