BACK-TO-SCHOOL SUPPLY AND FOOD GIVEAWAYS

Harvest Life is making a difference in our community! On Saturday, August 22nd, we are hosting a Back-To-School Supply Giveaway to help families who have been financially impacted by COVID-19 or are facing hardship by providing their youth (elementary through high school) with essential school supplies.  We are also partnering with Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank to give away food items to help feed families in need (while supplies last). 

This event is open to the public.  When you arrive to Harvest Life Church, please drive to the front of the building near the main entrance and remain in your vehicle as items will be placed in your trunk or back seat of your vehicle.  We ask that all giveaway recipients wear a face mask to help us maintain a safe environment for all.
