As summer vacation comes to a close, Ames Memorial United Methodist Church in Sandtown made sure students were prepared with their annual back-to-school bash.
Senior Pastor Rev. Rodney Hudson was excited to see more than 200-300 bookbags and school supplies donated to students a few days before the start of school.
“This event is important because it is the kick-off for our kids to have a great school year; not only are they armed with prayer, but prepared for the first day of class,” said Hudson. “Our faith partners along with community volunteers help make it a successful occasion.”
