School supply giveaway and free haircuts ease financial burden for parents
JOPLIN, Mo. — Kids get ready to go back to school with the help of Calvary Church of the Nazarene in Joplin.
The 4th Annual School Supply Giveaway provided 150 backpacks for the new school year, along with pencils and paper tucked inside, all courtesy of the congregation.
In addition to supplies, kids also walked away with a new hairdo.
“We just thought if we can get some folks in here cutting hair and helping out with that, it’s just one more thing on that back-to-school list that parents don’t have to worry about, and don’t have to fork over money for,” explained Pastor Wesley Anderson.
Kids also enjoyed free food and inflatable games.
