Jefferson Ave. church holds back-to-school giveaway



Rochester, New York – On Sunday morning, a back-to-school giveaway was held at the Jefferson Avenue Seventh-Day Adventist Church.

The event’s goal is to ease parent and school officials’ concerns about students being prepared for school by providing resources such as backpacks, binders, pencils, folders, and other school supplies, according to church officials.

Clothing and shoes are also provided.

According to church officials, despite the church still having significant damage due to a 4-alarm fire on Christmas 2021, they still believe that, as a faith-based group, they still believe in helping those in need.
