Communities need to stand together and assist one another when times are tough. Due to economic difficulties families in our community are experiencing, many students in the Village are unable to start the new school year with proper school supplies.
The Village of Oak Creek Church of the Nazarene, Weber's IGA and Desert Flour Bakery are sponsoring a school supply collection for students of Big Park Community School.
If you would like to assist those in need by purchasing school supplies, there are drop-off bins at Weber's, Desert Flour Bakery and the Nazarene church through July 24.
If you prefer to donate funds, go to vocnaz.org, click on "donations," then designate the funds to "Back 2 School." A list of needed school supplies is on the website, as well as attached to collection bins.
From 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, July 26, students from Big Park Community School are invited to receive free backpacks and school supplies at the Village of Oak Creek Church of the Nazarene, 55 Rojo Drive, a quarter-mile south of the Hilton roundabout.
There will be free hot dogs and drinks available, too. Supplies are limited, so we ask that only students truly in need of assistance respond.
If you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help with this community project, call Pastor Jim Cunningham at 702-810-4048 or 928-284-0015.
