FBC contributed the remainder of our Backpacks to this event:  Hot Dog Heaven’s seventh annual Back to School Community Celebration held at the Lexington Aquatic Center on Saturday, August 19th, 2017. All school-age children attending received a book bag and school supplies while enjoying swimming, music, games, food, spiritual uplifting and family fun as summer vacation comes to a close.*

School Supply final update

Here’s the final update on FBC’s Back to School mission this year from Ray:

One picture shows 576 packs of paper! Another shows boxes of supplies ready for delivery to Foster Children.

Other pictures are of book bags and supplies.

We collected 510 book bags. We delivered 6 boxes of school supplies to Social Services for the Foster Children. They were thrilled and said it was more than we have ever given in the past.

We had between $2500 – $3000 donated to help us buy the supplies. This was combined with the generous donations of people who brought book bags and various supplies. While it is hard to estimate the value, the supplies and book bags that will be given away amount to at least $5,000.

We are grateful to our entire church family and others in the community who made contributions to this effort!

Thanks FBC!

God is good ……  all the time!
