Each year, multiple Coatesville organizations would hold book bag drives to help the families and students of Coatesville to be properly equipped for the upcoming school year. In 2012 different Coatesville organizations came together to start a conversation with the hopes of unifying these events to best serve the community. Our aim was more than to provide a book bags for students. An idea was born to hold a city-wide event which would PREPARE and EQUIP the whole family (parents and students) for the coming school year. On August 22, 2013, the Back to School – Prepare for Success Event was held at Scott Middle School. Over 1,250 book bags were distributed to preschool – 12th-grade students and 12 different community groups distributed information to families in our community.
