What is it?
It is the body of Christ teaming up with other businesses, organizations and individuals to help the needy in our geographical region get better prepared for the new school year. Jesus said, “when you do unto the least of these, we are doing it for Him.” This project helps give families and their kids things to go back to school that they couldn’t afford.
Last year 2,800 pairs of sneakers, 4,000 new books, 2,600 supply-filled backpacks and 3,500 bags of groceries were given out to families in need in helping their kids go back to school. And this was just soe of what was provided to people.
What People Were Helped?
Kids from the Carlisle, Northern, Dover, York City, West Shore, Cumberland Valley and Mechanicsburg school districts were helped. Families from Cumberland, York, Adams, Dauphin, Perry and Lancaster counties were helped last year. All combined, over 5,000 people kids and families were helped in 2017.
