JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — A school supply drive was held Saturday, July 23 by the Stevenson Legal Group at Apostolic Ministries Church.
The drive provided over 200 backpacks and supplies to students in the Jackson community. There was also a crowd of vendors, an interactive obstacle course, board games, snow cones, and food and drink.
“We distributed more than 200 school supplies and backpacks. We were also able to provide the community with food, burgers, hot dogs, drinks, snow cones. We also had several vendors set up and handing out free supplies. Our goal is to give back to the community. We know that education is very important. If we can strengthen our education system, we can strengthen our community. We wanted to make sure, on behalf of Stevenson Legal Group, that we could give back to families. It’s so important to us. Building the family and making sure they have all the resources they need to be successful in life,” said Charles Stevenson of Stevenson Legal Group.
No word if the legal group will hold another school supply drive. However, discs like these are an important resource for the community.
