This wonderful community event will take place on Saturday, August 7th from 10am to 3pm.
Once again this year we will not be collecting school supplies here at the parish. Instead, we ask you to please take their donations directly to HOPE Helps at 812 Eyrie Drive in Oviedo.
Each year, HOPE staff and hundreds of volunteers host the Back to School Bash for registered clients with the help of local businesses and churches who sponsor the event and host donation boxes. At the Back to School Bash, children are given everything they need to start their first day of school. During this event, children receive backpacks, pencils, pens, glue, notebooks, paper, socks, underwear, jeans, and more. In addition to these items, clients get to enjoy a day of fun with games for the kids, lunch for the whole family, balloon animals, face painting, and access to additional resources.
HOPE is pleased to announce that they are offering a 2021 Modified, safe, in-person event and are looking forward to seeing everyone in person once again.
