Back 2 School Outreach 2019 - World Changers Church Cleveland
On 28 July, at our church building, we had a free food fellowship with hot dogs, chips, cake, and cookies. At this, we gave away 18 book bags fully stuffed with supplies. Although we mostly gave book bags and supplies to members, we were also able to offer a handful of book bags to children in our community, bringing a measure of relief to their parents. The school year starts early in Cleveland, so this event took some of the financial pressure away from a number of families. There were a couple of families who had not signed up but attended the event, and were in desperate need of school supplies, so we ran short. However, one of our church members ran to the store to get the extra items needed, and the look of gratitude on the faces of that family that we would go to those lengths to bless them was worth every cent. In another instance, a father who had recently been laid off broke down in tears, because he wasn’t able to afford supplies, which we gave him for free and some extra stationery on top of that.
