Packing Hope

Every year we collect school supplies to distribute to the families we serve here in our local area that are in need and unable to afford the purchase of school supplies for their children. There is no better way to break the cycle of poverty than to support education. Offering children Hope for a future just another way we’re breaking the cycle of poverty!

School Supply Drive – Packing Hope…and breaking the cycle of poverty through education!
