6th Annual Back To School Celebration at TD Garden | Aug. 24

Garden Neighborhood Charities, the philanthropic arm of the TD Garden, will once again partner with The Salvation Army and The City of Boston to host the SIXTH 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.
