CitySurfing Orlando's Guide to Back to School Events 

The start of school is coming and that means kids need school supplies. To help out those who need it, many organizations around Central Florida are hosting Back to School events, offering free supplies and more to kids.

Here is a list of Back to School events happening around Orlando and Central Florida. All are free to attend, unless otherwise noted.

All supplies are on a first-come-first-served basis, so we suggest you get to an event early. The children receiving these supplies need to be present, as well.
