From a pack of pencils, story books, crayons up to school bags, all these donations were given to the needed school children from Hopkins, Maya Center and Silk Grass which brought big smiles to their faces.
The Sittee River Seventh Day Adventist Church hosted a summer vacation Bible School program for a week where over 32 children from Sittee River Village attended. Mrs. Shelmadine Robinson, born and raised in Sittee River was the organizer of this event and was very happy with the attendance. She is a children lover and is very passionate of giving back to the kids and community. Art and Crafts, singing, acting classes and many more fun activities were all included in the program.
Thanks to all our guest who have contributed and continue to supporting our Back to School program, with your assistance we were able provide suitable supplies along with school bags to the children who attended this year Summer Bible School Program.
