Tree of Life Ministries’ Summer Giveaways Reach 1000 Loudoun Residents!

Loudoun County, VA – On August 12th and 19th, Tree of Life Ministries held its Annual Summer Giveaway events in each of our three regions: Purcellville, Leesburg, and Sterling.  These events are open to Loudoun County residents and beyond, offering free backpacks, school supplies, clothing, furniture, haircuts, and more.  This year, we had over 1000 attendees and gave out 990 backpacks filled with school supplies; additionally, 458 individuals received clothing.  This was all made possible by an army of 275 volunteers and the contributions of numerous local churches and businesses, as well as personal donations of clothing, furniture, backpacks, supplies, and more, from the Loudoun community for which we are beyond grateful.

In Leesburg, on August 12th, 500 attendees came out to Crossroads Baptist Church for a Back-to-School Fiesta providing free backpacks, food, activities, live music, and gospel presentations. This event was in partnership with One Hope Ministries and had volunteers from 10 churches in the Leesburg area. Backpacks and school supplies were donated by local churches and handed out to 350 students.

In Purcellville, on August 19th, we held our Annual Summer Giveaway at Purcellville Baptist Church and were able to provide free clothing to 458 individuals, as well as hand out 469 backpacks with school supplies.  The Purcellville event also shared the gospel with 300 people, gave free furniture to 30 families, provided 30 free haircuts, and handed out dental kits to 345 children.

Also on August 19th, our first ever giveaway event in Sterling took place at Sterling Park Baptist Church where 130 attendees heard the gospel in three different languages.  We were able to provide that community with 169 backpacks filled with school supplies, as well as have grocery items available and provide fun activities for the children in attendance.

Tree of Life Ministries serves the Loudoun County community year-round providing support through our five branches: Food, Lifeskills, Shelter, Healthcare, and Relief.  This support includes groceries and free meals, financial assistance for rent and utilities, English classes, transitional housing, programs for individuals with disabilities and more.  Our Annual Summer Giveaways are an opportunity for us to reach out to a wider range of families in need as they prepare for a new school year.  Our hope is that everyone who attends is blessed by these events and receives information about how Tree of Life can serve them if they should have future needs.
