FREE SCHOOL SUPPLIES TO KICK OFF THE YEAR RIGHT!
Students in the Highlands School District area are invited to the annual Paul Field Memorial Back to School Bash from 10 AM to 2 PM on Saturday, August 19 at 917 Brackenridge Ave. in Brackenridge.
Students in the Highlands School District area from grades Pre-K to grade 12 can register to receive a backpack with free school supplies at the August 19 event. Generations House of Worship is excited to support the Salvation Army Allegheny Valley Corps in its memorial tribute to Mr. Paul Field, a Brackenridge resident who donated supplies to neighborhood kids.

Lat year, more than 350 students were served!

The event is a family fun activity, with music by BMW the DJ, refreshments, bounce houses and a dunk tank, first responder equipment on display, demos by local youth sports activities, and performances by the Salvation Army youth and Generations House of Worship Bible school students.
