Garden Neighborhood Charities, the philanthropic arm of the TD Garden, proudly partnered with The Salvation Army and The City of Boston to host the FIFTH ANNUAL Back to School Celebration at the TD Garden. Studies have shown that children who do not have new school supplies at the beginning of the academic year often skip the first several important weeks of class because they are embarrassed and believe that they don't fit in with their peers. This event provided a positive experience while playing a crucial role in the academic and personal lives of these children.

Children and their loved ones joined together for fun and festivities at the TD Garden and receive a backpack filled with school supplies! Children shot hoops, played Bruins ‘slapshot’ and interacted with other fun activities. A broad range of ‘child friendly’ booths including anti-bullying, child nutrition, exercise, dental, emergency preparedness, and drug prevention booths were available.
