Brenneman Memorial Missionary Church is helping students in kindergarten through fifth grades get ready for school by giving away 1,000 backpacks, 500 pairs of gym shoes, free hair cuts and more at the first Back to School Goshen Aug. 4.
Brenneman Memorial Missionary Church, 61115 Ind. 15, Goshen, is hosting the event for Goshen-area school children from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis.
“Everything is free while supplies last,” said Director of Worship Kelli Armentrout.
Along with the gym shoes, canvas-style backpacks and school supplies giveaway, the day will include free lunch for all attendees, basic hair cuts, a car wash with fluid and tire checks, child safety seat inspections, a dental education booth with free dental supplies and a mini social services fair. There will also be a bouncey house to play in and drawings for gift cards throughout the day.
The shoes, backpacks, haircuts and dental station are only for children in grades K -5, Armentrout said. But younger children will be able to use the bouncey house and lunch is available to everyone.
