The first day is stressful.  Navigating the busing system, finding your classroom, making friends and connecting with your new teacher.  For some kids lack of school supplies can add to this stress.  The average school supply list costs 50-60 dollars which adds up fast in homes with multiple children.

For the past three years Mt. Olive United Methodist has been partnering with area churches and businesses to supply fully loaded backpacks for kids at the start of the school year.

Last year over 100 fully loaded backpacks and new outfits were given away.  As one family of four expressed "We don't know  what we'd do without the Back to School Bash."  

Our 2018 Back to School Bash will be August 4th at 9AM to noon at the Sweeter Switch trail-head locate on Main St. in Sweeter near Town-Hall.
