Saturday, July 24 | 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM | Westminster Hall

FPC is one of the host sites for KinMart, an event designed by South Texas Alliance for Orphans to help local foster families as their children go back to school. On July 24, we will welcome families to Westminster Hall for an enjoyable and cost-less “shopping” experience for school supplies.

The goal of KinMart is to offer a shopping day that meets the families’ needs and also gives dignity to all members of the family. While the event will still be free for those shopping, we will give each child fun money to shop for their own supplies. This is a great opportunity to introduce the families to our church community and ministry, which will hopefully lead to a long term relationship with Christ.

For any questions, please email Danielle Couch at daniellem.couch@gmail.com or Lindsay Selli at lindsays@fpcsat.org.


You can help in two ways: donate school supplies by July 18 or volunteer the day of the event.

Volunteer for KinMart

The families will shop from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM, but we need volunteers to help with set up one hour before, be present with the families during the two hour event, and clean up 30 minutes after the event is over. Volunteers can serve by organizing and restocking supplies on tables, helping families shop, collecting “fun money,” assisting with check out, and building relationships with the families through conversation.
