As we have been ministering to the families and communities in Leesburg this summer (4 VBS camps, 2 block parties, 1 sports camp) I have consistently been asked the same question every week by the kids and families we are reaching:
“When are you doing the school supply block party?”
Last summer we were able to bless over 100 children with backpacks and school supplies right before the school year as part of our #loveLeesburg weekend. Most of the kids wouldn’t have had the supplies they needed had we (with incredible help from you) not stepped up to meet this need in our community. We also shared the Gospel (in English and Spanish) at this event as we strongly believe in meeting practical needs while meeting the greatest need: salvation! So my question of all of us:
Can we do it again?
The answer is, YES! But not without a collaboration of Gospel-help from anyone and everyone that is able to help.
We have a little over 1 week to receive donations of school supplies for our #loveLeesburg weekend (Saturday, August 20 & Sunday, August 21). In order to make it as easy as possible for as many people as possible to get involved we have setup an Amazon Wish List with all of the school supplies needed. Simply CLICK THIS LINK and select as many school supplies as you would like to contribute to our #loveLeesburg weekend. Whether you can donate 1 item, multiple items, 1 of each item, or the entire quantity of 1 of the items on the list, anything and everything you can do will help! Any items you order off of the Amazon Wish List will be shipped directly to Rising Church which makes it even easier for you to get involved.
