Alexandria: Backpacks, School Supplies and More

‘My Brother’s Keeper’ ministry hosts annual event.

The Alfred Street Baptist Church frequently steps in to meet community needs that can go unnoticed, and the thousands of youth returning to school without the supplies they need is no exception. In two weeks’ time, volunteers at the church filled more than a thousand backpacks for elementary, middle and high school students attending Alexandria City Public Schools.
