On September 10, we held a "Back to School Bash" for the children and families living in Jackson Heights. We had games, snacks, a Bible story, and of course, a school supply giveaway! A BIG shout out goes to the VBS kids of Heritage Baptist Church, Montgomery, Alabama who donated hundreds of pencils, crayons, markers, glue sticks, and many more supplies.
We are hoping to go bigger next year and make this an annual event for the community. Our plan is to set-up the event in Diversity Plaza, the heart of Jackson Heights and invite many more families to join the fun. We would love to partner with churches so if your church is interested, shoot us an e-mail and we'll get you the information to start planning and recruiting now!
