Back-To-School Block Party volunteers rocked

This past Saturday, 8/27, we had the absolute pleasure of being part of the FIFTEENTH annual Englewood Back-to-School Block Party, hosted by Mt Calvary Baptist Church. Hundreds of residents came out from all over Englewood, and students received backpacks filled with school supplies that they will need throughout the school year.

We had 21 volunteers from Metro who came out to direct the Face Painting, Sand Art, Hand Print and Beading stations, and even though weather was insanely hot and humid, we all made it through and managed to have a great time (with the help of Christ’s love and multiple bottles of sun screen, haha).

We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to serve the community of Englewood, and we look forward to next year’s block party!
