South metro families are invited to attend a free back-to-school bash at a Burnsville church.

Discover Church is hosting "The Big Give," an event aimed to lighten the load for families in need who are preparing to send their kids back to school this fall.


Families can get back-to-school clothes, winter gear, backpacks, school supplies and haircuts at the event. Free Chick-fil-A will be provided to the first 200 people in attendance, and all who attend the event will get a free lunch.

Attendees can also get mini massages, framed family pictures and car detailing.

The event also includes family activities like pony rides, bounce houses, face painting and a basketball shootout.

“We know that there are seasons that are more challenging than others, and we would love to come alongside those families who are in the midst of a challenging season and let them know they are loved, valued and embraced by their community,” organizer Rachel Johnston said.

The event takes place from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, at Discover Church, located at 14300 W. Burnsville Parkway in Burnsville.
