GAKAC arrives on Saturday

Saturday morning will witness Give A Kid A Chance as it satisfies the needs of approximately 1,300 local students. Held at Ennis High School, the cooperative community event has been in operation for ten years. GAKAC organizer Marty Nelson is fond of saying, “Putting the needs of others before our own is when we are at our absolute best.” The impact of the annual back-to-school project is expected to positively bless the lives of 350 families. The single-day event is designed to assist students with one or two school uniforms, a back pack and school supplies, as well as access to community and faith service providers. Haircuts and other practical services and a free family portrait are also available on Saturday. “Students have to be nominated by someone, or families can request the assistance we provide,” added Nelson. “Our projections for this year are up a little from last year.” Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News.
