Vine of the Mountains hosts Vineival Aug. 17School supplies, backpacks available to Central Elementary students
Vine of the Mountains will host its seventh annual Vineival at 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, at The Vine's building in Frog Level, located at 188 Depot St.
Despite key volunteers moving away and others being affected deeply by downturns in the economy, Vine of the Mountains Church has continued to love on its community by providing free school supplies and backpacks to Central Elementary students and their families.
“We know the Great Recession has made it hard for many of our neighbors to afford all their necessities, and we just want to help them in this small way,” said Wende Goode, the event’s founder and coordinator.
Games, free food and crafts are all part of the Vineival.
“Every year, we have new people step in and play vital roles in putting on this event for the families of Central Elementary students,” Goode said. “And every year, we have as much fun with the games and crafts as the kids and their parents.”
Parents who have not yet signed their children up for the event should do so by Wednesday, Aug. 14, at www.thevine.cc or by contacting Goode at 356-7339.
