Over the course of the past two weeks, the idea of a back to school social went from an idea of a coupon swap to a full blown event with SO MANY GRACIOUS SPONSORS!

All supplies collected will be donated to the Fox 19 / Q102 Backpack Challenge with the ultimate destination of A.C.T and the Brighton Center.
