School-supply giveaway in Oblong

A school supplies giveaway will be Saturday at First Christian Church of Oblong from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Family Life Center.

Each student must be accompanied by an adult and will receive an individualized backpack full of certain school supplies, while supplies last. A total of 100-120 backpacks will be available in the giveaway.

Supplies in the bags differ between elementary and junior/high school students. Refreshments will also be provided, as well as an inflatable obstacle course.

The event is organized by Belle Kemp, 2018 OHS graduate and member of First Christian Church. She created the J-17-14 Mission in 2014 that focuses on community outreach. The mission is based on the scripture Jeremiah 17:14, which says, "Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for You are the one I praise."

Kemp is the youngest daughter of Keith and Amy Kemp, who own Daring to Soar Ministries and Blue Potato Music. She is a junior at Cedarville University in Ohio and is majoring in social work while playing basketball.
