Albany church helps families prepare for back to school

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - School will be back in session before we know it, and an Albany Church is helping families prepare.

First Monumental Faith Ministries held their Back to School Outreach Day at their Faith Closet on West Gordon Avenue.

They gave out school supplies..clothing..food..and haircuts to more than 300 families.

“We've given away school supplies today. We've given away over 100 backpacks, pens, pencils, paper. We're providing free cuts to all of the boys today, in fact we've done about 40 kids already this morning. The line was wrapped around the building. 300 people showed up this morning,” says Vice Pastor Roderald Carter.

The faith closet is opened three times a year. You can help donate slightly used clothes by calling First Monumental Faith Ministries at 229- 889-1443.
