Back to School with Confidence

Going back to school can be stressful and prompts many questions like “will I get new clothes?” or “how will I provide school supplies for my children?” However, because of the generous support from donors through the Back-to-School fundraising events, the children and families can go back to school with confidence.

Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children (OBHC) hosted three annual Back-to-School events across the state on Saturday, August 7. These events raised money for clothing and other basic needs for the children and families in care at OBHC’s four campuses.

Each of these events cultivates community involvement and brings awareness to the ministry of OBHC across the state. Many local communities donated items for auctions at each event. Thousands showed up to encourage, support and cheer on the children and families as they modeled their new clothes, purchased with donations from generous supporters like you. Attendees were also treated to entertainment and testimonies from children, as well as given an opportunity to meet the children and single mothers at the conclusion of each show.

These annual events draw the largest crowds each year and the impact their attendance has on those in OBHC’s care is immeasurable.

Thanks to everyone who supported these children and families, not just by attending, but through your actions of encouragement, prayers and love.
