Local church helps Region 8 students

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – A local church is working hard to help provide Region 8's students with the school supplies they need.

Starting tomorrow at 10:00 a.m., the Living Word Church on Southwest Drive will be handing out backpacks and school supplies.

Volunteers put in a lot of time to make sure they got just what area schools require, and to raise money to purchase the supplies.

Children's Pastor Stephen Dunnam says, "As we all know, the economy has been in bad shape recently and we know there's needy families around Jonesboro. And, we really feel this was a responsibility—something that we'd like to do. Just reach outside the walls of this church and really help and better the community."

Only the first one hundred children will receive backpacks and school supplies, so you have to come early!
