During last year’s Back to School Bash, volunteers distributed 293 backpacks, 35 bike helmets, 25 haircuts, 10 physicals, and 230 pairs of shoes. This year, we expect that number to increase dramatically as the needs for our community have expanded to include more children.

The love shared and lives impacted by your time and generosity represent a true gift from God.
