Back To School Supplies Give-Away Wednesday Night (Audio)

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011 at 10:34 am

On Wednesday, Aug. 24 three different local churches will be doing something great for those in need in our community.

The Back to School Supplies Give-Away will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. at Evangelical Free Church in Hinckley, First Presbyterian Church in Pine City, and also at Memorial Drive Bible Fellowship in Askov.

Lauren Elmers is an AmeriCorps Vista volunteer from New York who has recently stopped by WCMP to tell us about the Give-Away, which is open to any child, grades K-12 who is accompanied by an adult.

This is the 6th year the event has been held, and last year over 600 families from local area were blessed by the giving of others.
