Abundant Life hosting Back to School event

Abundant Life Worship Center of Egg Harbor City will host a Back to School event at its location at 32 New York Ave. on Aug. 25 at 2 p.m. With financial assistance from the community the church hopes to distribute more than 100 backpacks filled with school supplies to children in pre-school through 12th grade. The event will be held in a tent on a grassy area next to the church. There will be food, balloons, face painting, bouncy rides, music DJ and other activities for children and adults.

Church members have been collecting school supplies and soliciting donations from local businesses, but more is still needed. Donations of school supplies, gift cards, food and backpacks can be dropped off at the church or at the So Precious in His Sight children’s consignment shop at 244 Philadelphia Ave.

For more information, call LaShonine Smith at 609-965-7707.
