Our Back to School Bash was a Blast

Back to School Bash

Omaha, Nebraska (August 18, 2022) Completely KIDS held a successful Back to School Bash on Friday, August 5, 2022. This event – which helped community KIDS and families prep for the fast approaching school year – entertained 300 people and was represented by all Completely KIDS sites!

During the Back to School Bash, our KIDS enjoyed a number of gifts and goodies – 278 backpacks filled with school supplies were given out, families made seed bombs, taste tested a healthy snack from Whispering Roots and so much more.

KIDS and families also enjoyed our drawing – which gave out four bikes, 23 family memberships to the SAC Museum and eight FREE admissions to the SAC Museum!

Students also visited Laura, our Resource Coordinator, at our Out and About Trailer. Here, students used conductive copper tape and popsicle sticks to build 130 low-voltage flashlights. The Out and About Trailer carries bins of materials, circuits, LED lights, battery-operated gizmos and reams of cardboard. This allows visiting KIDS to use their imaginations to explore, think critically and create whatever they desire.

We couldn’t have done this without the help of great local businesses and their awesome support:

  • Hy-Vee served burgers and hotdogs, chips and a drink
  • 7 people got vaccinated against COVID-19, all-thanks to One World
  • Local business owner, Ana Rodriguez, handed out popsicles
  • Girl Scouts shared fun club information
  • KIDS had FUN on the Fun on the Run Obstacle Course provided by Fun Services!
