More than 75 volunteers, 200 participants and 50 children showed up for the World Mission Society Church of God’s and I Am Natural Beauty Salon’s FREE back to school event called “Braiding, Bible Study, and Barbecue Sunday, Sept. 4
” This event was carried out hoping to help alleviate the financial burden of back to school. There were several children’s activities including face painting, bounce house, arts and crafts. For many of the children this was their first time in a hair salon and they left feeling happy and confident to begin the 2016-2017 school year. One grandmother had her grandchildren drive all the way from the Tri-Cities," accruing to spokesperson Michael Severance. She said, “The Church of God is helping children have courage to step up and to feel confident for their first day of school. Without this event my grand daughters would not be able to get their hair done.” Another participant said, “If you look good, you feel good, and you will do good.”
Through this event the citizens of Federal Way were able to send off summer and welcome the new school year with a smile.
