Clothe-A-Teen and Pack the Bus

Clothe-A- Teen And Pack the Bus
Central Christian Church answers the call to help!
Clothe-A- Teen and Pack the Bus are two back-to- school programs run by Hope Southern Indiana. Through donations from generous supporters and countless hours of volunteer time, both programs have come to the aid of income-eligible
Floyd County children and teens as they begin the new school year. Pack the Bus provided backpacks filled with the essential items needed for school, such as notebooks, paper, pencils, pens, scissors, rulers, etc. This year, 2,520 backpacks and bulks supplies were delivered to schools on Friday, July 15. Eligible students will pick up their backpacks at registration. Not only did volunteers from Central help with the assembly &; delivery process, cash donations from Central members designated for Pack the Bus totaled $445.00.
Clothe-A- Teen, a program that began 50 years ago, provides a $75 voucher for each income-eligible middle & high school student to purchase school appropriate clothing and shoes at a local department store. On Monday, those students will gather at Burlington Coat Factory to shop for their school clothing. Hope volunteers will be on hand to assist with the shopping and present the voucher to the cashier at check-out time. This year, your generous donations to the Clothe-A- Teen program totaled $1,095.00!
Because of your compassion for the children in need in our community, you have armed them with the tools necessary to get the new school year off to a great start! May God Bless each of you!
