What? We’re already talking about heading back to school before this school year is even over? YES! It’s not too soon to be thinking about the needs of our local students for the next school year. The need is great, and so is our community! Approximately 500 area children will be supplied with the necessities required to begin school next year thanks to the generous support of the community. Young Faith in Christ is once again coordinating the Back 2 School Fair for St. Francois County for the 2016-17 school year. The fair will be a bit earlier this year than in years past. The event will take place on July 23, 2016 at Mineral Area College in Park Hills. As you can imagine, providing school supplies for 500 students is no small task and that is why we are asking now that you consider what you can do as an individual, group, organization, church or business. All basic school supplies are needed for this great event including but not limited to: backpacks, notebooks, pencils, markers, and more! At the fair families are also provided a snack, entertainment and various services at no cost to them. Some services that YFC would like to have included would be haircuts, eye exams, clothing or shoe vouchers, and any other service that could help a family in need. As you might guess, there is a need for many volunteers to make everything run smoothly and of course food and entertainment will be needed for the event.
