Annual Back-To-School Giveaway!

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010 at 12:30 pm

It’s time once again to think of making a difference by donating to Hinckley Evangelical Free Church’s Back-To-School giveaway. Each year there are children in our communities that don’t have the basic school supplies they need to return to school prepared for another year. This project is able to make sure any child that needs supplies can come to one of the three local distribution sites and get everything on their school supply list, free of cost.

This program was started by the Hinckley Evangelical Free Church and has grown to include many other churches, business’, and dedicated citizens. Last year the project expanded to include distribution sites in Askov, at Memorial Drive Bible Fellowship and in Pine City, at the First Presbyterian Church.

In the one night event last year, the giveaway was able to distribute supplies to over 800 children that came from Pine County and many neighboring communities. This years event will be held on Wednesday September 1 and is expected to supply 900-1,000 children in hopes of reaching out to help even more children.

All donations are used soley to fund this project, by purchasing school supplies listed by area schools such as backpacks, notebooks, folders, crayons, markers and pencils. The need is greater than ever but a difference can be made when we work together.

Any donation can be made to the “Hinckley Evangelical Free Church Back to School Project” and sent to:

Hinckley, MN 55037

Deadlines for donations is August 17th! If you have any questions about this event, or donations please feel free to contact Donna Wichner at 320-245-2607
