Church Gives Free Backpacks & Supplies to Students

Here is a great way one church is helping students get started for the school year. Aren’t these little ones cute?

Pairing kids w/ backpacks for school is goal of First Church of Christ

Students needing backpacks and supplies for the beginning of the school year may select one at a free carnival to be held at the 4-H park in Bluffton on August 6 beginning at 11:00 a.m. Any elementary school age student attending a Wells county school, including home school and Christian, are eligible.

 

According to event coordinator Becky Miller from the First Church of Christ, each backpack will contain pencils, crayons, scissors, glue sticks, index cards, rulers, and giveaways, many of which were donated by individuals and area churches. The event will include a meal for students and families and games. “We want to help families who may be overwhelmed at the cost of sending children to school this fall,” said Miller. 

 

The church plans to distribute 500 backpacks. For more information about the backpacks, call Becky Miller at beckymiller@viginc.net.
