Thank YOU for helping support local teachers

Thanks to the help of our incredible church family, we were able to collect over 17,000 pounds of school supplies that we distributed to 20 schools across Wake County. Volunteers served meals to local teachers, helped with classroom setup, and invested their time in blessing these teachers beyond anything they could have hoped or expected.

Thank you for helping us love and support the teachers that change the lives of children in the Triangle every day.


We are thrilled to help support several Wake County Public Schools this year with school supplies, breakfast or lunch, and classroom setup. Our Teachers have had such an incredible challenging year and they are so deserving of some well-deserved support. We need volunteers to make it happen!
