Mission Agape – School Supplies

If families don’t have food, how can they afford school supplies?

As we began to work with schools, counselors started sharing with us other needs their families had. We asked ourselves “If families could barely afford food, how could they afford school supplies?” Now, we hold a school supply distribution event every new school year to help families with the rising cost of supplies.

Our school supply program has been running for 5+ years and helps over 400 children a year.  These children are referred to us by our partnering schools and other partnering organizations.

School Supply Drive – July 2nd through July 27th.  Our goal is to bless 400+ students.
