BERNIE, MO (KFVS) - Hope International will be hosting three Back to School Bashes in Dexter, Bloomfield and Bernie this year.
They say their goal is to be able to supply each child with exactly what they need to get through the school year. Not only will children receive school supplies, but also things to prepare them for their school year. They will have the opportunity to get free haircuts, dental, vision and hearing screenings, and much more.
Organizers say they will also have a Stuff-A-Truck event at Dexter Walmart on July 27 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. This is where the community can come and help stuff a box truck with full of school supplies.
Last year, the group said they were able to give over 400 children the school supplies they needed for that year.
