  • Judy Taylor, missions director at Dorrisville Baptist Church, led volunteers Thursday morning at the church as they prepared for their church's annual school supply giveaway to be held between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 11. Forty volunteers showed up Thursday to get ready.
    The church is preparing to give grade appropriate school supplies to local children. "We are working from a list of needed supplies given to the church by the school board," said Taylor.
    Besides school supplies, the church is providing free haircuts, gym shoes, used clothing and new underwear. They have 600 pairs of gym shoes on hand.
    There will be no questions asked pertaining to income. A hot meal will be provided to parents and children.
    "Last year we served meals to 923 people at the event," said Taylor. "We'll be serving fried chicken Sunday."
