A congregation in West Virginia will be donating 100 backpacks, each filled with school supplies, to low-income students in advance of next school year.
Faith Baptist Church of Vienna will give away the backpacks and supplies for students on a first-come, first-serve basis on Saturday.
Pastor Scott Kapple told The Christian Post in an interview on Monday that this was the first time his church had done this kind of community-centered charity event.
“God just impressed on my heart that we needed to do something to help folks in this community,” said Kapple.
“Seems like all we do is go one mile for folks, but Jesus said we’re to go the extra mile. And that’s what we’re trying to do with this back to school drive.”
Kapple also told CP that one of the goals of the community event is “to reach children and their parents for Christ by doing this.”
“If we can reach just one person it’s worth every dime. We are planning more things like this in the next few months. Anything is possible with God,” continued Kapple.
