Winton Woods City Schools
Forest Park—A new school year began unlike any other and like many others across the world – online. For Winton Woods City Schools students, during a time of the unknown, one thing remained the same – the unwavering support and encouragement from the community. Amidst the current COVID-19 crisis, Forest Chapel Church continued their annual back-to-school donation drive providing school necessities for our Warrior scholars.
“We want our children to become community builders, and we do everything we can to model that philosophy for them. One way we model community building is by helping to equip our students and their schools, so that they can be successful. Partnering with the Winton Woods City School District allows us to make a difference in the lives of the students in the community and support the educators,” said Forest Chapel Church Pastor Kambamba Kiboko. “Together we are stronger.”
The donation boxes included hand sanitizer, Kleenex boxes, glue, and paper towels. This year’s Back-to-School sponsors included: Cincinnati Financial, Forest Park Chamber of Commerce, Forest Park Economic Development Department, Forest Park Meijer, Springdale Target, Colerain Target, West Chester Target, Blue Ash Target, and Fields Ertel Target.
