Relevant Church seeking donations for school supplies
by Staff Writer
“Every year, there are thousands of kids who go to schools without the proper supplies because their families cannot cover the cost of these items. And now with all of the government cutbacks on our school systems, there will be more children going without the supplies they need,” a church news release said.
Last year, the church gave new backpacks and supplies to 50 students, and the church hopes to more than double that number this year. The church expects to spend about $10 per student.
Anyone who wants to support the effort can mail a tax-deductible donation to Relevant Church, c/o Back to School, P.O. Box 681556, Charlotte NC 28216. Or make a donation at the church’s website, www.relevantnc.com/backtoschool.
Relevant Church holds services and other gatherings at Hopewell High School on Beatties Ford Road. Sunday mornings begin with a connection café at 10 a.m., and services for both adults and children follow at 10:30 a.m.
