HUBBARD, Ohio (WKBN) – About 500 families made their way to Hubbard for a back to school event and carnival Sunday. That number is up almost 100 from last year.
Corner House Christian Church is helping lots of kids get ready for the school year with back packs, pencils, markers and lots of other classroom necessities.
The school supply giveaway was inside the church and outside was a big carnival for everyone to enjoy.
The church says it wants the entire community know it’s here to serve them. Families didn’t have to spend a dime for anything.
“That is one of the big things we want to do for the community is that you are able to get all your school supplies you would need for free,” said volunteer Patrick Gainard.
Planning the carnival and back to school giveaway takes a lot of time and effort. The church starts work on next year’s event next week.
