Wolverine Welcome Back 2023

Wolverine Welcome Back

We held our seventh annual Wolverine Welcome Back to School event on August 4th! This year, we provided over 800 backpacks stuffed with school supplies to Mapleton students.  


The event was held on Friday, August 4, from 7:30a.m. – 9:30 a.m. at the Skyview Campus, 8990 York St, Thornton, CO 80229.


Community partners make this possible every year through generous donations of school supplies. Although this event isn’t necessarily targeted at specific families, we are confident it provides families with the greatest needs, essential back-to-school items children need to be successful.
