Back to School Supply Drive

First Free is lucky enough to be located between two elementary schools, which puts us in the perfect location to serve these schools as the new school year approaches! We will be collecting school supplies from July 1st to 22nd for children in our area who need them. Please check out the list of supplies at efree.org/events – we asked the schools what items were needed. We’ll have bins around the church at the entrances so dropping off supplies will be easy! On July 23rd we’ll be inviting families to come in and “shop” our supplies. We’ll need a few volunteers to help out, so if you’re interested, click below! Thank you in your advance for your support of the kids in our community!

Bridge of Hope Tutoring
Expand
Right now, the two elementary schools nearest Bridge of Hope in north St. Louis city have only a 4-6% reading proficiency rate, but you can help improve that number. If you’ve been looking for a tangible way to impact the lives of others during the pandemic, we’ve got a great one for you! Bridge of Hope has created an online tutoring program to help these children learn to read. It only takes 40 minutes, twice a week, and the impact can last a lifetime.

Bridge of Hope provides the curriculum and training you need to be successful.

To learn more about how you can get involved and help change a life, email robin@bridgeofhopestl.org.
