Ready, Set, Social Distancing in Davidson: Week 20

by | Jul 30, 2020 | News, Top Right Box

The Back2School Backpacks event will be a “drive through” this year.


This is our second edition of a modified “Ready, Set. . . Social Distancing in Davidson.” While we are still in Phase 2 of re-opening – we wanted to try to make this article more user-friendly for our readers. We will try to find and document online/virtual events and list them here in upcoming weeks. The other items that we had been including in previous editions have been broken out into individual articles: “Art in Your Inbox,” “Virtual Vacations,” and a dedicated article “This Week at the Davidson Farmers Market.”

Gethsemane Baptist Church invites you to participate in its annual Back2SchoolBreakout which, due to COVID-19 restrictions, will be held as a drive-thru event on Saturday, August 1, 2020.

The church already has 450 students registered to receive a bookbag filled with supplies so it is inviting the community to help with: donations of more bookbags, school supplies, and gift cards ($50 Walmart, Target, Visa/MC, Shoe Carnival, or other shoe stores suggested). You can make a donation via Paypal ([email protected]), Givelify (Gethsemane Baptist Church of Lake Norman), check (made payable to Gethsemane Baptist Church of LKN) or in-person cash or debit card swipe (note: B2SB in memo).
