Back to Basics, Back to School


Rock Hill Schools will host a "Back to Basics, Back to School" supply and shoe event in partnership with the York County Christian Chamber & Samaritans Feet International on Saturday August 6, 2011.  The event will be held at the FlexibleLearning Center located at 1234 Flint Street Ext. from 8 am - 12 noon.

Students in need are invited to attend to receive a new pair of socks, shoes, and a drawstring bag with donated supplies provided by the Office Depot Foundation. The presentation of shoes includes an opportunity for children to have their feet washed, they are invited to hear a story of hope & encouragement for their new school year.  Some of you may recall volunteering for this event in the Summer of 2008. 

We are in great need of caring volunteers to serve at this event to share affirmation, love, hope, and encouragement with our children as they start their new school year.  Volunteers may register at www.yorkchristianchamber.org, more event information is located there as well. 

In addition to volunteers, there is also a great need for donations.  The cost to sponsor a student in need is $10 per child for brand new shoes, socks, and supplies.  Donations may be made online at www.yorkchristianchamber.org or in person at the District Office located at 660 N Anderson Road, Rock Hill.

Please share this with anyone who you think may be interested in participating.  Thank you!!!
