Come join us for the 10th Annual Blessing of the Backpacks and Free Community Picnic, Sunday, August 13th from 4-6 on the Faith Church grounds, behind Bellefonte High School at 512 Hughes St. It promises to be the biggest and the best one yet! We’re helping kids get ready for school by giving them free school supplies, free haircuts, and health screenings (vision, dental, and hearing). School-age children and their families will gather at 4pm with a special prayers for the students and the school year. The first 400 students will receive free school supplies and a drawstring backpack. Join us for a free picnic, bounce house, games, plus an opportunity to talk with community organizations.  To mark the 10th Anniversary, community helpers from the fire companies, ambulance services and law enforcement will also be there with their equipment. It’s all free and all are welcome. Come join the fun!
