Each year, the Latino Community Center hosts an annual Back-to-School Bash for Latino children in Pittsburgh. In past years this event has served over 200 students featuring a day of fun, family-oriented activities designed to get our children and youth excited to start the upcoming school year. Backpacks filled with new school supplies are handed out to children during the day. Additionally, LCC’s partner organizations come together to table at the event and talk to families about their services, ensuring they have everything they need to support their children during the school year.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions and closures, the 2020 Back-to-School Bash will be in a different format. During the week of August 17-21, LCC will host the event virtually for families. Rather than a single day event, a week of virtual activities are planned with contact-free backpack delivery to ensure the safety and well-being of the students and their families.
Where: Virtual! Events will be held over Facebook Live on LCC’s Facebook Page and via Zoom
When: August 17-21
Sponsors & Event Partners: Eaton, US Steel, Burson Cohn & Wolfe, Pittsburgh Pirates, Self-Care Señorita, PPG Foundation, Boys & Girls Club of Western Pennsylvania, GIFT Pittsburgh, Free Store, A Plus Schools, and PEAL.
Event updates will be posted to LCC’s Facebook page in the days leading up to the event. Registration for backpacks ended on August 7 and LCC is currently adding families to a waitlist for those. For questions about the event, call 412-335-7446.
