Churches make sure area youngsters are ready for class
Sunday, August 5, 2012
Seven-year-old Allen Young let his sister, just a year older, take a try at cutting his hair this summer.
A free haircut at Saturday’s Operation Backpack hosted by First Assembly of God Church, helped correct the results of that attempt before school resumes in a couple of weeks.
In total, First Assembly’s event will save hundreds of local families more than $4,000 in school supplies, backpacks and haircuts. Across town, seven churches joined together to offer a similar, cost-saving event.
