Mayor's Backpack Giveaway

Mayor’s Backpack Giveaway 

Daytona Beach parents will get a break this year when it comes to shopping for back-to-school supplies for their children. The Mayor’s Backpack Giveaway Program will provide students with new backpacks and school supplies at four locations throughout the city.

This annual event is sponsored by the City of Daytona Beach, Target, Geico, Bubba Gump, Southern Stone Event Group, FPL, Walmart, All Aboard Storage, Kiwanis International, Daytona International Speedway, ProTech, Daytona Beach Police and Daytona Beach Fire Department, Jimmy Johns and Bethune Cookman University Dining Services.There is no cost to recipients.

“I want our youth to have adequate school supplies. Having the right supplies could make the difference between a successful school year and a failure. I am honored to be able to continue this worthwhile tradition,” said Daytona Beach Mayor Derrick Henry, a longtime educator.
