Kansas City Councilman Terry Riley is joining forces with the Kansas City, Missouri School District (KCMSD) and longtime partner Children’s Mercy Family Health Partners to host his annual Back-to-School Fair on Saturday, July 31 at Manual Career Technical Center.

The fair will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the football field at Manual Tech, 1215 E. Truman Road, Kansas City, MO 64106. For more information,  please call (816) 513-1629. Confirmations of reservations will be mailed by July 12.

KCMSD will operate two school bus shuttles that will transport visitors to and from the Manual Tech complex. The shuttle sites are as follows:

  • Northeast High School, 415 Van Brunt Blvd., Kansas City, MO 64106  (In front of the school)
  • Afrikan-Centered Education Collegium Campus, 3500 E. Meyer Blvd., Kansas City, MO 64132 (In front of the Upper Campus)

The shuttles will begin at 9:30 a.m. The buses will travel between the shuttle sites and Manual Tech at nearly 30-minute intervals. The last shuttle bus will depart Manual Tech for drop-off at 1:30 p.m.

In recent years, the councilman, in partnership with Children’s Mercy Family Health Partners, and the District hosted separate back-to-school fairs in order to bring needed supplies and services to local families. This year, the trio is combining its collective resources and community connections to bring backpacks, school supplies, school uniforms, immunizations, health services, books, and much more to an estimated 5,000 students.

The fair is also supported by the following community partners: Carter Broadcast Group, OfficeMax, Target, and KCWE Channel 29.
