Back to School Rallies August 3 - Free Backpacks and School Supplies

Each year, the YMCA of Central Kentucky, in partnership with Fayette County Public Schools, sponsors and community partners, hosts the annual neighborhood Back to School Rallies.

The rallies provide elementary, middle and high school students with free full-size backpacks and school supplies. Each site distributes supplies for all grade levels. The Back to School Rallies is an initiative of the Y, which has served as the central coordinator of this event since 2011. Since that time, more than 42,000 children have been served. 

This year's event will be held on Saturday, Aug. 15, 2020.

  • Sites are drive thru pick up only. There are eight sites this year. Please see the list and choose the site closest to you. 
  • Event will run from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. Families must register for a pick up time for this event.
  • Registration is open through August 12. Register at ONLY one site (information will be confirmed). Continue to click “More” on the form until you find your closest site.
