First Methodist holds Backpack 2 School

The First United Methodist Church in Vandalia will again be hosting “Backpack 2 School” at the church’s Family Life Center at Fourth and Main streets in Vandalia, from 4-6 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 8.
Any school child, accompanied by a parent or guardian, can receive a free backpack containing coupons and some free giveaways.
The event is planned as a fun time, with games, activities, face-painting, free hair cuts and refreshments.
Two bicycles will be given away, along with many other prizes donated by local businesses.
High school students do not need to be accompanied by parents.
The event precedes the “Tools for Schools” ministry sponsored by First Presbyterian Church on West Fillmore Street on Aug. 9-12, when students may receive free school supplies.
