Sharon Baptist Church (SBC), of Cumberland, recently provided Cumberland County Public Schools (CCPS) with a generous donation of school supplies. The SBC Community Outreach Ministry has provided free school supplies to students in Cumberland for 14 years. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, we had a School Supply Fun Day, free school supplies, food, games, face painting and more for all children in attendance. All supplies left over were taken to the CCPS. Post the pandemic, the SBC Community Outreach Ministry has continued to deliver generous donations of school supplies to CCPS.
