This year we will be partnering with the Wellsville Local School District's Give-Away on Thursday. August 24th from 6-8pm to pass out backpacks filled with school supplies + goodies and to hang out with YOU! Come see us amd join in the fun! What a great opportunity to get in our schools to Share the Love of Jesus + Be a Voice of Hope to our kids + teachers (sound familiar? yes! it is a part of our WFCC Mission!).
This year in 2017 our church supplied 735 backpacks to the WLSD Back to School Bash. Thank you to all who donated your efforts of time, finances + prayer towards loving on our community's kids!
As we approach the upcoming school year it is our desire to reach as many kids as possible with as many school supplies as possible. Instead of doing a massive give-away with only a few things - we'd like to give fuller bags, better equipped with items from the supply lists, and include more of what our different age groups actualy need for school. Look for more info soon on how you can help us raise funds and gather supplies.
In the past Backpack Bash has been a great free Community Outreach event hosted by WFCC each year, partnered with many families and businesses from the surrounding area. Backpack Bash 2014 gave away over 400 backpacks filled with school supplies! Our day included lots of free give-aways (bikes! food! shoes! giftcards!), contests, bouncehouses, games and most of all the opportunity to share God's love with our community family!
