We invite you to join us in supporting local families by being part of our 2019 Lancaster County Back to School Bash.
While we live in a world of plenty, over 55% of students in the Lancaster County Schools live in poverty, with some elementary schools indicating that 90% of their students live in poverty. For these people, daily decisions revolve around whether to buy food, go to the doctor, pay utility bills, put gas in the car, or buy medicine. When school starts in late summer, hundreds of families do not have enough money to pay for the basic school supplies.
Lancaster County churches, businesses, and organizations are holding a Back to School Bash from 10am-1pm on August 10, 2019 at the Springdale Recreation Center in Lancaster for K-12 students! At this fun event, we will provide a pair of new shoes and socks to each child, a backpack and school supplies, a hot dog, and even a haircut!
We would like for you to join us in helping provide the shoes, backpacks, and supplies to the estimated 800-1000 students we hope to serve. $30 covers one student. Your help could come in the form of tax deductible monetary donations or by donating bottled water, hot dogs, chips, backpacks, school supplies, and/or haircuts. There are various sponsorship levels with benefits to each. Our TIN is 57-0641980.
