Coweta Assembly will host its 20th annual Back 2 School Event Sunday, Aug. 2 at 1 p.m. at the church, 29707 E. State Hwy. 51. This will be a drive-thru school supply pickup only. There will be no clothing distribution or haircuts this year.
“The school supply packs may not include everything needed on the school supply lists; however, we are hoping it gives parents a good start and that it blesses them during the unprecedented year we have experienced as a community together,” said Coweta Assembly Office Manager Mari Horn.
Those attending are asked to not line up until 1 p.m. That will enable the parking lot to clear out following the morning church service.
Access to the church will be through the east entrance off of Highway 51. The line will go around the church campus and participants will drive into the portico from the west for pick up. Watch for directional signs.
“Participants will drive through in their cars and we will hand supply packs through the window or load them in their cars,” Horn explained. “We will also supply a shoe voucher for them to get a pair of new shoes at the Coweta Oddfellows Lodge behind the Dollar General Store.”
IOOF is supplying a limited number of vouchers and they will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis.
“We are really glad we can still do this program. It’s needed, especially this year,” Horn said.
