"Supply Our Students"


PROJECT: SOS distributed 6,000 brand new back packs filled with school supplies last school year!

We couldn’t do this without the generous support of businesses, organizations, churches, families and individuals who collect supplies, donate funds, and volunteer their time to help. Thank you for making a real difference in the lives of our community's kids!
