Peoria Heights church hosts backpack giveaway
PEORIA (WEEK) - Redeeming Love Church opened its doors to the community for a backpack giveaway.
They were offering backpacks full of back-to-school essentials like pencils, notebooks and crayons. There was also free food, haircuts, and games for a fun filled day. The church says this is a way to help support the community.
“We want the community to come out, get a backpack for school, get some fellowship, have a little fun and enjoy the rest of the day,” Church volunteer Michele Moore said.
The church said they had 250 backs and hoped to give them all away.
