THE 27TH ANNUAL DALLAS MAYORS BACK TO SCHOOL FAIR,

POWERED BY THE JUNIOR LEAGUE OF DALLAS, WILL TAKE PLACE

FRIDAY, AUGUST 4 AT FAIR PARK

 

Mayor Eric L. Johnson and Dallas Independent School District (Dallas ISD) are hosting the 27th Annual Dallas Mayor’s Back to School Fair, powered by the Junior League of Dallas,  Friday, August 4, 2023, at Fair Park inside the Automobile Building and Centennial Hall. The fair, hosted by Mayor Johnson, is a collaborative event between the City of Dallas, Dallas Independent School District (Dallas ISD), nonprofits, corporations, and community volunteers. Each year, it serves over 10,000 economically disadvantaged students in grade levels pre-K to 12 and their families. For 27 years, the fair has served as a one-stop shop for school supplies, valuable services, and community resources. Pre-registered Dallas students and their families will receive school supplies at the fair and access to immunizations, dental screenings, vision exams, and other health and social services provided by more than 100 vendors. This year, the Junior League of Dallas will power the event and recruit, train, and support more than 500 event volunteers.

The Junior League of Dallas cultivates leaders who collectively address the critical needs of the community. Founded in 1922, JLD is one of the largest Junior Leagues in the world, as well as the largest and oldest training organization for women in Dallas. Active members range in age from 22 to 49, with approximately 85% percent of women employed outside the home. The JLD provides leadership opportunities to nearly 4,000 women each year through more than 17,000 cumulative hours of experiential and formal training. Uniquely member-run, JLD provides approximately 100,000 hours in volunteer service and more than $1 million in funding to area nonprofits each year.
