Local Church Holds Free Back-to-School Giveaway

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.-  A local church is helping families get ready for school by giving out brand new backups and clothes.

For 10 years, New Beginnings Faith Church; has been holding their annual back to school giveaway. Members of the church buy the supplies and fill up entire back packs full of pencils, folders, scissors, you name it! Along with the supplies, the church gave away clothing for toddlers and youth. The church says the need for this type of giveaway continues to grow in the Sioux empire.

It’s a way to touch the lives of people, making them feel valued. To help people that have needs, everyone needs to be encouraged, everyone needs to know they are important and count,” says Pastor Larry Forristall.

The only requirement for parents was they had to show up with their children.
