Back to School Bash!

We held our annual Back-to-School Bash at the Child Advocacy Center on July 26, 2018.  Once again it was a very successful event in which we handed out approximately 40 backpacks to our therapy clients and their siblings.  For the kid’s entertainment we had a bouncy slide, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, pizza and desert.  We also were joined by the Loudon County Sheriff Department’s K-9 Unit and their handlers.  The kids, parents and staff really enjoyed meeting and petting the K-9’s.  We were very grateful to them for volunteering their  time to come to our event.  We would also like to thank The Loudon County United Way for their generous donation of school supplies.  Thanks goes to Oral Baptist Church who also generously provided school supplies and volunteers to stuff the backpacks with the school supplies.  We were also extremely grateful for the monetary donations that were received which assisted us in buying the school supplies we still needed our list.  If you didn’t have the opportunity to donate and wish to do so, feel free to mail your donation to us at the CAC, P.O. Box 928, Lenoir City, TN 37771, or even drop by to visit us at 887 W Hwy 70, Lenoir City, TN 37771.  Your donation is tax-deductible.    All donations are greatly appreciated! Throughout the year we acquire therapy kids who are in need of backpacks and school supplies, therefore we can always use the donations!  Thank you once again to all those who helped make our Back-to-School Bash a success!
