St. Louis Public Schools and the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, Inc. are gearing up to host the Annual Back to School and Community Empowerment Festival on Saturday, August 2 from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon at the Chaifetz Arena. St. Louis Community Credit Union, the Missouri Lottery and Emerson are the principal sponsors of the event.

The Back to School and Community Empowerment Festival is free for all St. Louis residents. More than 100 vendors will be on hand to serve over 7,500 students and their families at this event. Free school supplies will be given to students while supplies last.

“We are excited to offer this benefit to help students and their families prepare for the first day of school,” said Linda Harris, vice president of Administration and Compliance of the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, Inc.

Inside the Chaifetz Arena, SLPS officials will be on hand to assist with transportation, enrollment and other school-related questions and concerns. The Urban League will feature its Roadmap to Opportunity Zone offering various community services from Head Start enrollment to utility assistance information and many other services.

 

This year’s event also includes numerous activities and points of interest on the grounds outside the Chaifetz Arena. Scheduled activities include senior citizen’s service area, job fair, financial literacy, HiSET registration, go-kart racing, pony rides and a bounce house.
