School Supplies for Families in Need

Posted: Updated:

Park City Baptist Church wants to ease the stress families may feel when purchasing school supplies.

They started Backpacks for Progress to provide school supplies to families in need. The church's outreach coordinator Julie Diskin says parents will spend approximately $80 to $100 on school supplies.

"The thought that the kids aren't going to be having what they need to get a good start to the school year just didn't sit well with me," Diskin explained. "I had those issues when my kids were growing up and I knew how it felt and I knew from their standpoint too how it felt."

They will be outside of the Walmart in Laurel for donations. The church will take any supplies until they hand out the backpacks on August 13 and 17.

If you would like to contribute, you can call Diskin at 208-8906.
