A Fun Way to Get Ready for the New School Season

During the upcoming tax-free weekend, parents and students will have a new back-to-school event where they can receive free information, compete in fun activities, win great door prizes and learn about resources available through local organizations. The Heart2Heart Foundation, Rock Hill School District 3 and Rock Hill Galleria have teamed up with more than thirty community agencies and businesses to bring the Back2School Block Party to the mall on Saturday, August 3, 2019, from 10:00am until 2:00pm.

The goal of the Back2School Block Party is to educate local parents and students about resources available to families through the Rock Hill School District and York County service organizations. Participating Community Partners will educate parents and students about making healthy choices about nutrition, fitness, smoking and drug use.

Plus, we will have free screenings for adults and students including blood pressure, diabetes, BMI, vision and dental in addition to fun activities and giveaways.
