COVID-19 has altered how back to school will function this year. However, one thing that has not changed is Pima County Sheriff’s Department commitment to our community. While large gatherings are not feasible, under current guidelines, we have been resolute to find a means to equip youth for the upcoming school year.

For the past six years the Pima County Sheriff's Department has been hosting Badges and Backpacks. Last year’s event, which drew over 4,000 attendees, was an all-inclusive back to school health, safety and activity fair. With the help of Banner Aetna we gave out 2,000 backpacks stuffed with school supplies. Additionally, we had 80 exhibitors that all provided youth focused activities or resources.

🌟Special thanks:
Title Sponsor Banner-Aetna

Platinum Sponsors: iHeart Radio and Tucson Electric Power

Gold Sponsors: El Rio Health and United Health Care

🌟Community Partners who are providing additional items for the backpacks:
Eeggee's, Office of Emergency Management, Peter Piper Pizza, TRAK Tucson, Tucson Fire Department
