Saturday, August 10, 9am-12pm

You’re invited to the North Austin Back to School Splash on Saturday, August 10, 9am-12pm at Holy Word Lutheran Church (10601 Bluff Bend Dr, Austin, TX, 78753). The Splash is a free family fun event that connects neighbors with the relationships and resources that make our community safer, smarter and healthier.

This year Holy Word Austin will be giving away free backpacks filled with school supplies (one per child while supplies last). Other activities include a giant inflatable water slide (bring your swimsuit & towel), dunk tank, bounce house, live music and more. Browse indoor and outdoor vendors including Austin fire truck, police car and health services.

How can I get involved?

  • Donate a monetary gift. Visit www.HolyWord.net > Click the blue giving button on the lower right corner > Select “Back to School Splash”. Donations help fund the water slide & dunk tank rental, school supplies that fill the backpacks and the healthy-choice lunch. Cash, change and checks accepted in the church lobby. Find the “backpack box”.

  • Friday fill-up. On the Friday evening before the event we need volunteers to help fill up the backpacks with school supplies, set up tables and put up signage. Friday, August 9, 5-8pm.

  • Splash Day servers. On Saturday, August 10, we need volunteers to prep snacks, staff the welcome table and backpack give-away station and more. Saturday, 8/10, 8am-12pm.
