3rd Annual Back-to-School Celebration to be held at Cypress Creek Church. Date and Time TBD

Saturday 8/13/2022 (8:00-10:30) @ the Barnabas Office

The Barnabas Connection is excited to Celebrate the 16th annual Back-to-School Fiesta and 2nd Annual Back-to-School Celebration.

(Celebration hosted by Cypress Creek Church)

The last 2 years have shown our community and world just how important it is to come together, both in times of need and in times of Celebration!

Last year (Summer 2021) we added a Back-to-School CELEBRATION that followed our Back-to-School Fiesta! It was a HUGE Success! Over 300 parents and children joined over 50 Nonprofits, Community Agencies, Churches, and local businesses as we kicked off the new year.

The Goals of Expanding the Back-to-School Fiesta to a community-wide event are:

  • To generate EXCITEMENT in the community for ALL kids/families in a fun and safe setting as we celebrate being able to come TOGETHER for the start of the 2022-2023 school year.
  • To provide RESOURCES and REFERRALS for ALL families in the Wimberley Valley.
  • To continue to provide supplies and backpacks for students in need, while identifying new areas of need through reaching out to all families via local nonprofits and community partners.

How it works:

The Back to School Fiesta provides backpacks, school supplies, and other services to approximately 500 students living within the boundaries of Wimberley ISD. Multiple community partnerships, donors and volunteers make this program possible.

Please join us in supporting this important event for our local students in need!  Let’s send them to school excited about the learning to come!

If you are looking to participate as a recipient, you can register online here:
