Welcome to the St. Christopher’s 12th Annual Back to School Carnival!

For the twelfth straight year, we are celebrating summer with a backpack giveaway on July 25 from 10 am – 2 pm, along with virtual tents online to provide vital resources to families. Since the carnival’s inception, the event has entertained nearly 13,000 children and their families, and provided school supplies to thousands of children. The free event is hosted by St. Christopher’s Center for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs and Drexel University College of Medicine.

Enjoy our one-of-a-kind virtual celebration!
