Back To School Bash 2020

Sat. August 1, 2020 - 9am to 2pm

(This represents the most current information on the event - more information will follow as we work to clarify and perfect this process)

As in previous years, the Back To School Bash is FREE to the community and allows families to come to Corinth Baptist Church for gently-worn clothing in all sizes (infant through adult), as well as backpacks and school supplies for children and youth (K-12).

 

Due to the current pandemic, the event will run differently than in prior years. Unlike prior years, we will not be requiring the children be present to receive a backpack (we are encouraging people to not bring their children this year, if possible). Other changes are outlined below.

New for 2020, we are proud to offer THREE different options for guests of the Back To School Bash to choose from:

 

1. Online Pre-Order (thru Thursday, July 30, 2020)
(Recommended)


If you've ever placed a "drive-up" order at Target, this will feel familiar. This option allows you to complete your shopping online in the comfort of your home. Just complete the online form by Thurs. July 30, 2020 (date subject to change).

 

Your order will be shopped and bagged prior to the event date. If you select the video chat option when completing the online form we will contact you the week of the event to schedule your video session, during which time you will get to provide input as your order is being shopped. The video chat is completely optional.

On the day of the event (Aug. 1, 2020, between 9am and 2pm) come to Corinth Baptist Church (click here for directions), follow the arrows to the Pre-Order pick up location (on the right side of the parking lot), and follow volunteer instructions. Your order will be loaded into the trunk of your vehicle by our volunteers.


The links for placing your Online Pre-Order can be found here. Click the link that corresponds to the number of children you will be shopping for:

 

1 Child - Online Form

2 Children - Online Form

 

3 Children - Online Form

 

4 Children - Online Form

 

5 Children - Online Form

 

6 Children - Online Form
 

If you have more than 6 children, please complete the 6 child form and then start a second form for the additional children.

*Use of the video chat option will require a smartphone/tablet with the Google Duo app installed, which can be downloaded for free from the App Store or Google Play. The video chat option is completely optional.

2. Curbside Ordering (day of the event)

(Recommended)
 

If you've visited a Chick-fil-a drive-thru recently, this will feel familiar. On the day of the event (Aug. 1, 2020, between 9am and 2pm), come to Corinth Baptist Church (click here for directions) and follow the arrows for the Curbside Ordering location (on the left side of the building). A volunteer will come to your vehicle window to complete your order form.

 

They will then direct you to the designated parking area while your order is gathered by one of our dedicated shoppers. If you select the video chat option* a volunteer will contact you when they are ready to shop your order, so that you can view items and provide input. The video chat is completely optional.

 

A volunteer will then bring your completed order to your vehicle and load your trunk for you.
 


*Use of the video chat option will require a smartphone/tablet with the Google Duo app installed, which can be downloaded for free from the App Store or Google Play. The video chat option is completely optional.

3. Walk-In Shopping (day of the event)

 

If you've visited our event before, this option will feel familiar. However, there will be some changes from how this normally operates.

 

On the day of the event (Aug. 1, 2020, between 9am and 2pm) come to Corinth Baptist Church (click here for directions) and follow volunteer instructions to the designated parking area. Stay in your vehicle, as a volunteer will come over to your vehicle to complete the short check-in process (entering you into the virtual queue line).

Guests will then wait in the comfort of their vehicle (no more standing in the hot summer sun!) until they receive a phone call notifying them that it's their turn, inviting them into the designated building entrance. This will allow us to maintain social distancing requirements and manage the flow of people inside the building.

Guests choosing the Walk-In option will be required to wear a face mask whenever not in their vehicles. Anyone unwilling or unable to wear a face mask will need to select one of the other 2 options above (pre-order or curbside) instead, as there will be no exceptions to the mask rule (not even for medical reasons). 

We are also asking that guests limit the number of family members entering the building to only those that are absolutely essential, with everyone else waiting at home or in the vehicle.

 

---

Unfortunately, unlike previous years we will not be offering snacks or entertainment for those coming to the event. We are encouraging as many people as possible to select one of the two options that allow guests to remain in their vehicles the entire time. If people do choose the Walk-In option, we will be running that option as outlined above.

Unlike prior years, we will not be requiring the children be present to receive a backpack (we are encouraging people to not bring their children this year, if possible).
