Hughes UMC Hub: The Gift of Learning

Welcome to the "Gift of Learning" Back to School Drive, hosted by Hughes United Methodist Church Mid-County Hub! Our goal is to support students in need by providing them with the essential tools they need for a successful academic year. As we prepare to send children from kindergarten to 12th grade back to school, we recognize the financial burden many parents face in purchasing school supplies, with the average grade school student spending a staggering $800 annually.

With your generous contributions, in partnership with Hughes United Methodist Church Mid-County Hub, we aim to alleviate this burden for families in our community by distributing 500 backpacks filled with school supplies. These backpacks are more than just bags; they symbolize hope, empowerment, and the chance for every child to thrive in their educational journey.

Our shared commitment to making education accessible to all students is what drives this initiative. By participating in our "Gift of Learning" campaign, you become a vital part of enabling students to start the academic year with confidence and readiness. From crayons and notebooks to calculators and rulers, every contribution will directly impact a student's ability to engage fully in their studies, without worrying about the financial constraints that can hinder their educational experience.

Join us, along with Hughes United Methodist Church Mid-County Hub, in making a real difference in the lives of these students and their families. Together, we can empower young minds, foster a love for learning, and build a brighter future for our entire community.

Your support matters, and we extend our heartfelt gratitude for being a part of the "Gift of Learning" Back to School Drive. Together, let's ensure that no child is left behind and that every student has the opportunity to succeed academically, unlocking their full potential with the gift of education.

Note: All funds raised will be utilized solely for purchasing backpacks and school supplies for students in need, and full transparency will be maintained throughout the entire distribution process. Hughes United Methodist Church Mid-County Hub stands committed to making this drive a resounding success, fueled by the spirit of compassion and unity.
