TERRE HAUTE, Ind (WTWO/WAWV) — As many schools in the Valley are getting ready for another year of learning this week, a local church provided some school supplies for local children in need.

The giveaway was part of the Second Missionary Baptist Church’s annual Friends and Family Weekend.

The weekend allowed members of the church to connect with the Wabash Valley while also lending a helping hand.

The event included: food, games, and an opportunity for children to get vaccinations before returning to school.

During the giveaway last year, the church gave away 169 backpacks to children in need.
