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

The rallies provide elementary, middle and high school students with free backpacks and school supplies. Each neighborhood 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. 3, 2019.
