Giving Hearts, sponsored by the Calvary Bible Church, held its ‘Back to School’ themed clothing giveaway on Saturday August 11th at their Church in Todd Valley. This was the 21st giveaway event and it helped 182 people belonging to 57 families with clothes, accessories, shoes, etc.
The School supplies, which included new backpacks, duffel bags, binders, and various other supplies were given out and were greatly appreciated by the kids and their parents. A total of 40 school supply bags were given out. A Big THANK YOU to Dollar General for donating the school supplies!
For the FIRST time, we also included a food pantry, which allowed 91 people belonging to 21 families to get food, most of which were snacks suitable for the school lunch bag.
We want to thank the community for their generous donations – without, whom, we would not be able to put on these events.
The Free Clothing Giveaways happens 4 times a year. The next one is on Saturday October 20th and the last one for 2018 is on Saturday December 8th.
If you have any questions or need more information, please call Roanne at 367-2788. Donations of new or gently used, clean clothing and accessories can be dropped off at the Calvary Bible Church, 20801 Todd Valley Road, on the 2nd Monday of the month, between 9 am to Noon, starting September 10th.
