About Us


Our Team

Our amazing team of community partners, event sponsors, supporters and volunteers are committed to helping others. Together, we merge need, commitment, appreciation and fun to prepare our entire community for back to school! We are extremely proud to have Fayetteville State University's Office of College Assistance and Prep (OCAP) host our event on the campus of Fayetteville State University for 2019


Our History

Seeing a need and the importance for area students to be prepared for the beginning of the school year, we formed our organization to provide sensible solutions. Backpacks with school supplies for the students, community information for parents and guardians and most of all, providing the platform to highlight the work of our area educators, student support programs, and area organizations that partner with us to meet the many diverse needs of the community. We've consistently grown since 2007 and to date, have shared information to nearly 9,000 residents. In dollars, we have supported the community by hosting this event with an estimated value over $30,000 in contribution and aid. Gotcha'Back has grown to be the largest back to school event for our county and surrounding areas. Many, many thanks goes to the helping hands of this amazing community for their support for the last 11 years!
