OAK HILL,WV (WOAY) – One community came together to host a back to school bash to make sure every child has what they need to kick off the school year.
This will mark the fourth year Lifebridge Assembly of God in Oak Hill has held the bash.
750 bags were packed to make sure all Fayette County and a few other counties student’s were given bookbags, pencils and even a fresh haircut to start their school year!
Local first responders came to pass out popcorn and even showed off their emergency vehicles for students.
Newswatch spoke with some students who tell us why they appreciate this event.
Collins Middle School Student, Skylar Warden said, “We can get a good education we can write down notes and carry our stuff. Our parents can save money for the food at home now that we don’t have to buy the school supplies for school.”
“Some people get picked on for stuff like what type of shoes they have, and now I’m not worried about that this year I’m just gonna go have fun,” Oak Hill Highschool student, Sean Lopez said.
Lifebridge would like to thank the entire community for helping make this event happen and they are looking forward to continuing this tradition.
