Indianapolis Urban League

Back-to-School Block Party

IUL Back-to-School Block Party

As with every year, this year’s event will distribute 3000 backsacks filled with school supplies to students in grades K-12 on Saturday, July 28th from 10am-1pm!

This year, we will not only have a LIVE DJ, FREE FOOD, FAMILY FUN, FREE CHILDREN’S SHOES, AND FREE HEALTH SCREENINGS, we will also have the Urban Farmers Market! Come and purchase fresh produce from local farmers (all  farmers accept EBT!), food products, clothing, jewelry, and connect with community partners!

Live Entertainment featuring Lakeside and Kool Moe Dee!

This community outreach event was attended by over 2500 individuals in 2017.

Backpacks and schools supplies were distributed to over 2500 area students.

Contributions defray the expenses of providing backpacks, school supplies, educational flyers and materials, food and entertainment to Block Party guests. The backpacks and supplies lessen the economic burden of adequately preparing children for school.

Title Sponsors Include: Geico, MetroPCS, Brickyard 400, IUPUI, and the American federation for Children.
