Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the annual Back2School distribution on Saturday became a drive-thru endeavor. Back2School program is open to all children and teenagers from kindergarten through senior. The program gives each student a backpack filled with school supplies and a cloth mask, a new pair of shoes and socks, inspirational stories and prayer. The backpacks were distributed at each of the 17 churches that participated this year. This is the 14th annual program, which has served 25,000 students so far.
