School Supplies Ministry
July 1 - August 13 at
New South River Baptist Association and their partner churches start gathering school supplies in July prior to the upcoming school year. The churches either drop off various items on the school supply list and/or book bags to pack the bags with. Each book bag is easily valued at +$50 for each child. A devotional is included in each book bag with supplies. Applicants from the association churches fill out applications that are signed by their pastors and are given a time to come by the Resource Center to choose the book bag they want. In the school year 2017-2018, 200+ children were blessed with full book bags. Left over school supplies were given to churches that sponsor schools during the school year to hand out as needed.
