Conway, Ark. - On Saturday, August 13th, returning Central Baptist College Wrestlers teamed up to help the Pleasant Branch Baptist Church in their 9th annual Pine Street Backpack Event. The primary goal of the backpack program is to provide school supplies for children in grades kindergarten through 12th from low income families that live in the city of Conway and surrounding areas, according to the organization's information. Over 1000 students recieve supplies to start the school year.
This year's event was the sixth for Coach Prophete and his upper classmen. "This is an event my returners come back early for," said Prophete. " Later in preseason I introduce my freshman to community service and next year they will take the lead in this event."
For more information or to get involved in next year's event contact Coach Ken Prophete at 501-205-8846
