The Annual Back to School Celebration

On August 3, 2019, Burbank Housing Corporation (BHC) hosted the annual Back to School Celebration in our Peyton-Grismer Neighborhood. Every year, BHC works with the Back to School Committee of the Burbank Nonprofit Coalition to fundraise and organize this community event. 

Parents and school-age kids had the opportunity to find out about existing kid-focused programs, services and support. Local non-profits, educational groups, civic organizations and municipal departments set up booths to offer information, direct services, and referrals. Local beauticians provided free haircuts and the Kids’ Community Dental Clinic gave free dental screenings to children who attended. 

With the generosity of our donors, we were able to give away hundreds of new backpacks and school supplies to local children in need. Volunteers from churches, community service organizations, businesses, and BHC staff helped make this day possible! We hope everyone enjoyed their time at our Back to School Celebration.

Thank You to our Donors & Partners!
