Davidson Residents Invited to Participate in Back2School Community Event

by | Jul 22, 2021

Please consider supporting the Annual Back to School event.

Gethsemane Baptist Church of Lake Norman, in partnership with Davidson United Methodist Church, Lake Forest – Davidson, St. Alban’s Episcopal Church, and Davidson College Presbyterian Church, will host its 15th annual Back2School Community Outreach on Saturday, August 14, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. To view a promotional video, click here.

You can make a monetary donation or buy these supplies to help fill the backpacks.

Back2School aims to equip 600 K-12 students for the upcoming school year by providing book bags and school supplies to those who register for the event by August 1. Also for 2021, there is a limited supply of supplies for college students who register by August 1. Those interested can either register online or call 704-892-1635.

There are multiple ways that Davidson residents can offer their support for this event:

  • Make an online monetary donation through Givelify by clicking here.
  • Make a donation by check, payable to Gethsemane Baptist Church at 565 Jetton Street, Davidson, NC 28036.
  • Donate a $25 gift card or supplies (see list imaged) by Friday, August 6.

Despite the shift to a drive-through event in 2020, Back2School Community Outreach distributed bags and supplies to 677 students. The August 14, 2021 outreach will remain a drive through event.

For more information or questions, see Gethsemane Baptist Church’s website or reach out to Tracy Mattison Brandon at 704-892-1635.
