The Back 2 School Festival will be holding its annual kick-off on May 23rd from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the F.A.R.M. Café in Boone.

Last year the Back 2 School Festival helped nearly 1,200 Watauga County students get the school supplies they needed to start the school year confident and prepared, offering everything from backpacks, pencils, and notebook paper, to shoes and fresh haircuts.

The Back 2 School Festival is dedicated to the idea that every student deserves to start off the school year on equal footing. S

ponsors and volunteers are always needed to make sure that happens.
