Back-to-school season is here, which brings additional stress for some Stateline parents who struggle to get their kids the supplies they need for another school year. Thank goodness Heartland Church's Delta Group has decided to help by packing over 2,000 backpacks for local students who desperately need them.


Distribution of these backpacks will begin this Saturday, August 8 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Washington Park and Blackhawk community centers, Wantz Park/St. Bridget's Church, and St. Elizabeth's Center. These back-to-school rallies will also feature games, activities, prizes, lunch and plenty of family fun. For more information, or to find out how you can help, contact Heartland Community Church.
