2012 BACC Book Bag Drive – Success!

Every year we hold a Book Bag Drive at The Bridge Academy and Community Center.  We just held our 2012 Drive, and it was a complete success! From everyone at the BACC, we want to say THANK YOU!! With your support, we were able to give out over 650 book bags to the children of Coatesville. We would not have been able to have this day without the aid of many individuals, churches, and businesses.  Every book bag and notebook that was bought was given to people so that they do not have the burden of worrying about getting these supplies themselves.

We look forward to holding this event each year for many reasons.  We believe that this gift shows the many parents, loving guardians, and students that we care for them, and that we hold education at a high priority.  We also hope these gifts show the love of Christ.  We pray that this event encourages families to stick together, and to continue to build relationships with us at the Bridge Academy.

In each book bag, we have supplies as well as a flyer with our programs, and a letter written by Jack Crans on behalf of us at The Bridge Academy and Community Center and the Camp at Old Mill.  This letter, these gifts, and this fun filled event (with many smiling faces) may just be the boost of encouragement that someone needed.  The ripples of this event could be huge- leading to in-depth relationships, chances to hear about the Lord’s love for them, a challenge to take their education to the next level, and more than we could imagine.  Even though the actual event may be over, we still have one more step- to pray! Please pray that God will ignite a spark within the lives of our kids and their families. We want people to know Jesus intimately, and this event is just a small glimpse into what is happening at the BACC.
