On August 19, 2017, pastors and members of First Missionary Baptist, Parkton, Hatcher's Chapel AME Zion, Parkton Baptist, Parkton Community, and Parkton Presbyterian Churches joined together with volunteers and faculty of Parkton Elementary School for its First Annual Back-to-School event. Over 200 children received school supplies along with hotdogs, hamburgers, snow cones, popcorn, snacks, and drinks. Mr. Tim Walker of Deluxe Barber in Hope Mills provided haircuts for any youth which desired one. The successful event was coordinated with the much-appreciated assistance of Parkton Elementary’s principal, Mrs. Kendra Deese and school social worker, Ms. Jo Coe.
