Medina church, Police Department donate back-to-school supplies, bike helmets
MEDINA – A church in Medina, Segunda Iglesia Fieles Discípulos de Jesucristo, normally throws a big party before the start of the school year, distributing back-to-school supplies. Medina police officers and firefighters stop by for the event, which was at Butts Park last year.
The Covid-19 pandemic and restrictions on public gatherings forced the church to cancel the event this year.
But the church leaders decided they still wanted to donate back-to-school supplies. Segunda Iglesia partnered with the Medina Police Department to donate backpacks, school supplies and helmets to the school district.
“We thank God for this opportunity and also give special thanks to the Medina Police Department and Chief of Police for their generosity and for collaborating with us on this,” said Jovannie Canales, the church’s senior pastor.
