The main goal of the Multicultural Centre of Southwest Florida is to support students in need while also celebrating the diversity in our community. Free backpacks and school supplies will be provided to the first 2,000 children ages 5-12 who attend. Children must be present with their parent or guardian in order to receive the supplies. The Big Backpack Event will also provide free services such as eye exams, haircuts and fingerprinting. Festivities include face painting, a bounce house and a full day of live multicultural entertainment on the main stage of the event center.
The Multicultural Centre of Southwest Florida is a 501(c)3 organization that raises funds to support students in need with their back-to-school needs.
