School Supply Ministry Kicking Off Sixth Season Of Helping Halifax County Students In Need

Halifax Co., VA-- It's around that time of the year again. Kids are getting ready to go back to school, which means time to tackle that long school supplies list.

For some parents who are down on their luck, the Dan River Baptist Association comes to their rescue. For six years they've ran a school supplies office for kids in need in Halifax County Schools.

Around this time though, their supplies run out quickly because the need so great. They keep afloat with local churches and organizations, and are also asking members of the community to donate so they don't run out.

"The excitement, as one of the principals shared with me, when she saw the eyes of that student when she handed her the book bag, and she said is this mine? So it's making a difference," said Dot Carr, Dan River Baptist Association Associational Coordinator.

If you'd like to donate, call the Dan River Baptist Association at 434-572-2608.
