700 local kids get free gifts during ‘Rock Back to School Bash’ in Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. —  It was a special day for families in need, as Rock Family Church held their second annual “Rock Back to School Bash.”

Rock Family Church held two events — one in the morning at their Woodman Campus and another in the afternoon at their South Campus.

Families lined their kids up to get everything including free backpacks, school supplies and haircuts.

Outside the church there were games, a photo booth and ice cream for all to enjoy.

Lead Pastor Dean Hawk says Rock Family Church raised all the funds themselves through their Community Outreach Program “Dare to Care.”

Pastor Hawk said they had raised enough money to serve 700 children at the events.

“Our goal is just to love on our city, invest in families, and try to make a difference in our community,” said Pastor Hawk.

The church holds four to five major events like this every year. Right now, they’re already prepping for fall and Christmas.
