Local churches are continuing the nearly two-decade-old tradition of bringing health services, school resources, and pre-back-to-school entertainment to the community.

 

Each year, the block party distributes more than 1,000 school kits to students grades K through 8, helping save local families the often-significant cost of purchasing semester supplies. In addition, the annual event provides toothbrushes, floss, and free dental and health checks.

 

In addition to hotdogs and other refreshments, the event will feature carnival games and musical performances. 

 

Planned participants in the block party will include area human services agencies and non-profit groups, the Miller Park Zoo and the Humane Society of Central Illinois (both weather permitting), and Bloomington Fire and Police Departments. The Book Bike also will be onsite, with a book giveaway, along with face painting by the Zoo Lady, a raffle for kids’ bikes, FunBelievable Balloons, a bounce house, a cake walk, and an incline wall from Upper Limits.
