Serving Depew Middle School

Knowing that the start of school can put some added stress on families, we wanted to reach out and see if there was any opportunity to provide school supplies to families in need in our community. Being a school counselor myself, I approached the  school counselor at Depew Middle School if they would bless us by allowing us give to their need. Without any hesitation, she empathetically accepted! We aided in providing over 15 families with school supplies that they would have otherwise not have been able have unless the donation was made to the school. In the midst of the giving we had the opportunity to not only model the love of Christ by meeting a need but also share the gospel of Jesus Christ with some staff at the School as well. They gladly notified the families of who gave the school the supplies and sent us a heartfelt letter stating “it’s wonderful that your congregation has come together to reach out to a local school and offer a REAL helping hand!”
