Victory Life Church to host Back to School Bash
On Sunday, Aug. 7, the Victory Life Church of Orange, located at 7708 N. Hwy 87, will be celebrating its eighth annual Back to School Bash from 2 to 6 p.m. This event is open to the public and free of charge.
Our goal is to reach the community and to show the love of Jesus Christ by providing free school supplies to all children that come. Last year, KDFM recorded our event as we provided over 50 students with needed school supplies to begin their classes. This year we expect an even greater turnout. It has always been our goal that no child will leave empty handed.
We invite you to come out and take pride in supporting our community! Everything we offer will be free of charge and would like any local media coverage to adequately showcase and advertise this event. We will also graciously accept contributions from local corporations and small businesses who wish to donate school supplies, door prize items or monetary assistance to purchase school supplies.
