Give a Kid a Chance
The Give a Kid a Chance Back-to-School Outreach is a one-day event designed to help single parents send their children back to school each fall. It utilizes church or school buildings, preparing each room to meet a different need. Children receive brand new clothing, hair cuts, book bags, school supplies, and dental, hearing & vision exams. If a problem is found, it is addressed free of charge. There is a job fair, food, entertainment, and a Gospel presentation, while out in the parking lot mechanics are busy changing the single parents’ oil and doing light maintenance on their vehicles. Through collaboration with other churches, businesses, and community organizations, we are reaching over 10,000 children and single parents every year.
