Kokomo Rescue Mission’s Back to School Shoes, Clothing & Undergarments Giveaway
The school year is just around the corner, and the Kokomo Rescue Mission wants every student to experience the joy of receiving a new pair of school shoes, new socks, and new undergarments to begin their year. The Rescue Mission, in partnership with Crossroads Community Church, other area churches and donors, invites income-qualified members of the community to come “shop” with their students ages 5-18, who are entering grades K-12.
This year’s Back to School Giveaway will be held at a NEW LOCATION, Grace United Methodist Church, 219 W. Mulberry St. the week of July 20 to 23. The days and times will be Monday and Wednesday from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm; Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Qualified students will receive brand new shoes, socks, and undergarments for the coming school year. In addition, students may also qualify to receive a clothing voucher for gently used clothing at the Care & Share Store.
