Kids are you ready to go back to school? The answer is probably “NO”! Ask their parents and the answer is probably “YES!”. What do you think the answer will be for Teachers?
In any case, whether they are ready to go back to school or not, many kids in the Triad often go without school supplies. Supplies can be costly, even with all the deals going on. Locals and Non-profits are stepping up throughout the Triad to make sure children have what they need for the school year. Learn below about how our church is also answering the call…
Our Church Outreach Ministry will be partnering on an annual Back to School Drive held Sunday, August 26th before the kids go back to school August 27th. This is an annual community drive organized by one of our own church members by Bro Rathel Dailey and local barbers where free haircuts, free food and school supplies are given to over 200 school aged boys and girls every year.
This year Abundant Life Church is joining them and collecting school supplies. Bins will be located in the kitchen to collect these items, so every Sunday and Wednesday during services from July 25th to August 19th you can always drop off items.
We will also host one Saturday collection on August 18th from 10am to 12pm.
We would love for each member to donate at least one bookbag filled with school supplies if you can. Check our website blog or link below if you need the school supply list for ideas and be sure to catch those back to school deals!
King’s Kids parents, please contact us to get your kids name on the list.
More event info on the August 26th Distribution Day you can find here.
Meet your Outreach Ministry members; our info and contact sheet is located in the kitchen for any questions, or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
