Pens, paper, notebooks and folders can be costly, but they're necessary for school aged kids.

This year, a local organization is teaming up with others to help make sure our children have what they need when school starts. 

Resurrection Health is a Christian-based organization that works to restore spiritual, physical, and social well being among the under-served of Memphis and Shelby County. Right now, they have two locations on American Way and in Whitehaven that offer adult and pediatric primary and inpatient care but they want to go further, so this year their focus is kids and school supplies.

Just in time for school to begin, Resurrection Health will offer free school supplies and health screenings throughout the week of July 20. There will be an open house and an accompanying party for the occasion, which will include food, bounce houses, face painting, drawings for Wal-Mart gift cards or school uniform vouchers, and more.

With values such as loyalty, love, and righting injustice, Resurrection Health is fighting for the under-reached communities by developing leaders and
providing compassionate care. Join them in the celebration of both their opening and their cause, and help make this day a party!

When: Thursday, July 23 2015 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Where: Resurrection Health-Whitehaven (5339 Elvis Presley Blvd. Memphis, TN 38116)

Cost: Free!
