NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 24, 2018) — The CHARM Foundation will hold their annual Back To School Bash on Saturday, August 4th at the Martha O’Bryan Center in East Nashville. Each year, the CHARM “ Back To School Bash” helps children to prepare for the school year by providing them with school supplies. These resources will help children get off to a great start for the school year with free backpacks, hygiene kits, health screenings, school supplies, dental screenings, haircuts and more.
The CHARM Foundation is founded by Jaclyn Stapp, philanthropist, award-winning children’s author, mother, and wife of Grammy award-winning singer Scott Stapp of Creed. Growing up with humble beginnings, Jaclyn started CHARM at 17 years old as a way to give back to the community. The organization has been profiled by People Magazine, The Dr. OZ Show, ABC News, Good Morning America and more.
“ Children need to be protected and nurtured,” Jaclyn says. “ We can all make a difference in a child’s life by encouraging and instilling confidence and providing them with the basic resources to give them a chance to succeed. I am extremely proud and happy to meet with our Nashville community to help support their educational needs. My heartfelt thanks to the Charm Committee, Martha O’Bryan Center and everyone else involved in this year’s event.”
Jaclyn will be appearing on WSMV NBC’s Today In Nashville on Wednesday, July 25th. Tune in to hear more from Jaclyn on this year’s exciting Back To School Bash.

CHARM foundation partners with select organizations, churches, and corporations to deliver supplies and resources at the CHARM annual drive.
