August came and went – and just like that, Summer 2019 is over and school is back in session. We started the month with our annual backpack and school supply outreach. We were able to help 174 kids this year. Huge thanks to the John Mark Sunday School Class at St. Stephen UMC, who came out and stuffed all those backpacks for us. Its a huge undertaking, but its totally worth it to see those happy smiles!
Getting back into the school routine doesn’t mean we quit having our usual fun. In fact, our crowds kept getting bigger this month. Whether it was the last round of water balloons, crazy games, or fun crafts, we found ways to make the last days of summer – and the first weeks of school – extra special.
