Back to School Backpack and Supplies Giveaway and Haircuts

LBC will host a Back to School Backpack and Supplies Giveaway on Sunday evening, July 30, 2017 from 6pm to 8pm.

Liberty Baptist Church of Blanchard, PA will host a Back to School Backpack and Supplies Giveaway on Sunday evening July 30, 2017 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  

Community students, pre-school through 12th grade, are invited to attend to receive free backpacks and school supplies to equip them for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year. The Back to School – School Supply Give-Away is sponsored by the Board of Christian Education, The American Baptist Women Circle, and the church Social Committee.  The event is first-come, first-serve, while school supplies and backpacks last.  There will be enough backpacks to reach 100 students this year.

“We believe our program is just a little bit different from others in our area.  Instead of lining the children up and handing them a pre-packed backpack with supplies, we set up our church gym as a store.  The students can come in and select their own supplies.  In essence, they have an opportunity to ‘shop’ for their supplies just like other kids at their schools.  Last year one of the students remarked that they were at ‘ChurchMart,” stated Greta Davis, chair of the Social Committee.

This program began last school year with the Church serving over sixty children in the community.  This year the Church hopes to serve 100 children.  The program has also expanded to add free haircuts for children as well.  Megan Kelley of Supercuts in State College is giving her time and talents to provide children with a new look to go with their new school supplies.

 “The simply need to arrive with clean, dry hair and we will take care of the rest,” said Kelley.

This year refreshments will also be provided to the children and their families by The American Baptist Women Circle from Liberty Baptist Church.

“There are two fundamental ways to change the life of a child,” stated Liberty Baptist Church Pastor, Chris Davis, “Introduce them to the good news of Jesus Christ, and give them an education.  It’s really hard for a kid to be excited about going back to school when they don’t have the tools they need and their family cannot afford to provide them. ”

The doors will open at 6:00 pm and begin with a short program.  The children and their families will be released by number corresponding with their arrival to the event so that they can begin to select their own school supplies and backpack.

“Our church family has pulled together in a phenomenal way to make sure that area children can start school on equal footing this school year with the supplies that they need.  We are excited to share Christ’s love with them and their families through this event.” Stated Tammy Weaver, Chairperson of the Board of Christian Education.
