Back to School Supply Drive

Aug 17, 2011


UPDATE AUGUST 29, 2011:  Today we delivered the supplies that were generously donated.  It took four trips just to bring all the supplies into the office at Orchard View Elementary! 

Thank you Mission family!  Because of you there will many children that can focus on their education and many families that know that someone cares about their child’s education.  This is true Christianity, helping those in need.

Awesome job!
