New Beginnings Worship Center hosts back-to-school giveaway
PEORIA (WEEK) - Hundreds of people showed up to New Beginnings Worship Center for their back-to-school giveaway on Saturday.
It was the 13th annual event. The church gave away school supplies, backpacks, bikes, clothing, along with the free dental and physical work. There was also a mobile petting zoo and bounce house for kids to enjoy. The church said this is their way of helping the community during these harsh financial times.
“We’re trying to impact the community and so much is going on and so many people have been struggling trying to make ends meet through this recessionary period. It’s been a blessing to help people in what they need,” Church Pastor Quinton Brown said.
There were around 400 backpacks given away at the event.
