Victory Life Church in Orange is having their Back to School Bash 2012 coming up at 2 p.m. Aug. 5.

They have been reaching out to the Southeast Texas community for 10 years with this annual event by hosting a day full of fun activities and giving away school supplies for those that are in need. This year they are working in conjunction with the Salvation Army to host the event in effort to accommodate even more families.

Recently, the state sponsored Desk Program for Texas has been discontinued and many children are not able to prepare for school with supplies on their own.

This year it is required students pre-register for the supplies starting on July 23-26 at the Salvation Army and also on the day of the event at Victory Life Church. Those receiving school supplies must have monthly income forms and a monthly bill to show Orange County residence when they pre-register, as well as student ID/proof of residence.

For those who attend the event there will be food, free haircuts, child ID kits, Medicare/CHIP program resources, a wide range of community non-profit organizations and much more fun activities including horses. In addition , Intense Ministries will  be demonstrating feats of strength.
