Spring Hill Baptist to host school supply giveaway

August 2, 2018

With the summer break coming to a close for area children, Spring Hill Baptist Church is giving a hand to needy students with a Back 2 School Extravaganza this week.

The Back 2 School Extravaganza is the church’s event that gives out backpacks filled with school supplies to needy children. The event is scheduled for Aug. 4 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the church’s location. The address is 9130 Hwy 150 West in Coldspring.

“We’re giving away 200 backpacks,” said Spring Hill Baptist Church Evangelist Cheryl West.

West says the congregation also wants to help with many returning children still affected from the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey

“There are still a lot of people that have been affected,” she said.

Spring Hill Baptist Church is hosting games and food for any of its guests that show up, all of which is free.

Guest speakers will also be present to give words of encouragement for children returning to school.

“We’re praying for them and we’re standing with them,” said West.

West explains that this is in part to give children encouragement in the wake of recent school shootings. Spring Hill Baptist Church is hoping to help students overcome any misgivings about returning to school and know they are being watched over by those who care for them.

“They don’t have to fear anything,” said West.

For more information, call West at 281-804-0531, Missionary Evelyn Mason at 281-635-0099 or Johnnie Jones at 832-498-4964.
