Aniya Bryant, a senior at TSU who attends The Temple Church, is organizing a city-wide coat drive for MNPS students at schools across the district. She is looking for fellow church partners to collect and help distribute coats to MNPS.
New Garden Church, who meets at Dupont Tyler Middle School in Hermitage on Sundays for service, held a Back to School Bash with the DTMS Open House. “We had almost 40 volunteers greeting, directing, meeting students and parents, and giving out backpacks and school supplies.
Each year, new partners join our network, and existing partners deepen their engagement. Seeing how this engagement translates into meaningful interactions between students, staff, families, and volunteers encourages us as we collaborate with MNPS to understand how the faith community can support district initiatives.
