DJ Bling's Back 2 School was first organized in September 2013 as a way to give back to the community and provide free school supplies to students whose families couldn't afford enough school supplies for their children. Since 2013, our back-to-school program has grown from only 25 kids to now providing school supplies for an average 1,000 students a year, ranging in grades from Pre-K to College. We also provide other resources such as free medical and dental resources, and access to other family resources provided by various organizations and departments in the City of Austin. Average attendance surpasses 3,000 attendees a year making DJ Bling's Back 2 School one of the largest back-to-school events in the City of Austin.
