Edenton United: Back to School Bash


Edenton United is a group of churches and local organizations. The back to school bash is Saturday August 18 at John A Holmes High School starting at 4pm. There will be free food, games, music - fun for the whole family. We are going to be giving away 800 backpacks filled with school supplies. You can help by donating the following: black pens, colored pencils, boxes of 24 crayons, washable markers and boxes of tissues.

Each church is responsible for bringing certain items to help fill the backpacks. Open Door Church is responsible for providing:

colored pencils

boxes of 24 crayons

washable markers

boxes of tissues

Bring supplies to church by July 29th so backpacks have time to be filled.

If you would like to volunteer, there are two opportunities: Filling backpacks to help prepare for the event and helping at the actual event. Sign up below to get more information about volunteering.

Preparations for the Back to School Bash will be on Thursday, August 9th. If you would like to help stuff backpacks, that will begin at 5PM in the Armory. Volunteers are encouraged to attend a special worship service on the 9th at 7PM also in the Armory. Volunteers will sign up for the areas they wish to work that evening and pick up their badges.

If you would like to help stuff backpacks, that will begin at 5 pm in the Armory.
