Back to School Basics

Jun 24, 2016

Remember how nervous you were on the first day of school? Many local kids in Park City do not have the means to buy a new outfit or get new school supplies. You can help! The Christian Center is taking over 500 local kids shopping at the Outlets on Aug 5 as part of "Back 2 School Basics". Each student is given a gift card to use shopping, which CCPC provides. Sponsor a child for $100 donation at www.ccofpc.org. Find out info on volunteering or collecting school supplies at www.ccofpc.org
