Fiesta in Fuqua gets kids ready for school

DUNCAN, Okla._Duncan's New Life Church is taking the helm of a back to school bash to ensure kids are happy and healthy before the new school year begins.

Saturday morning they hosted the 11th Annual Fiesta in Fuqua event.

Students from Pre-K all the way through high school got to play games and eat, while also receiving a bag of school supplies for the upcoming year.

Health, dental and vision screenings were also available.

For mothers like Destiny Chisum, Saturday's event helps take some of the beginning-of-the-school-year burden off her back.

"I have three kids, so every year, I sit down and I take the list and I look at the school supplies and there's just so much, and it's overwhelming sometimes, but, to know I can come here and get over half of it," Chisum said.

Those wanting to help with next year's festivities and beyond can contact the New Life Church at 580-736-4455.
