Back to School Bash- School Supplies Project (August)
Our annual “Back to School Bash” in August is hosted by WestPointe Church in Delano. Families in need enjoy a nice lunch, free school supplies and an afternoon of fun, games, and even face painting. We held our first one in August of 2008 – what a day of joy filled abundance!
This project is usually done during the summer months of June, July, and August. When children are preparing for their return to school, certain supplies are needed. These supplies are collected, sorted, and then distributed to them on the night of the Bash.
Each family is screened to ensure that the need is legitimate before they are given supplies. School supplies that are needed each year include:
Please contact the LOVE INC – Heartland office if you'd like to get involved in the Back to School Bash. Please consider picking up a few supplies when you see them in stores in August. Every little bit helps students in need. Supplies can be dropped off at Love INC- Heartland in Delano or at WestPointe Church.
