On Saturday, July 30th and Saturday, Aug 6th, COSILoveYou will host the fourth annual “Backpack Bash”.The Backpack Bash is a citywide effort that seeks to provide access to all things back-to-school for thousands of families in need across the Pikes Peak region. This includes backpacks filled with essential school supplies, additional health services, and the opportunity to have fun as a family in a carnival-style setting.
This event takes place on two consecutive Saturdays, at six locations across the community. Due to the collaborative nature of the Backpack Bash and the hard work of many local partners, this event is completely free to the community. The Backpack Bash is prepared to resource 12,000 students with the essential items needed to get a great start to the school year.
To ensure that we are able to execute the Backpack Bash, COSILoveYou is relying upon the generosity of the community. Our greatest need right now is backpacks. Please consider donating a new backpack at any of the donation drop-off sites across our community. If you’d prefer to make a financial donation, you can fund a new backpack for a student in the Pikes Peak region for just $11. For all info on how to donate, visit backpackbash.com
