Officials said they are planning on 1,200 attendees participating in the fourth annual Unity in the Community Festival on July 28, at Grace Fellowship in Atmore.
Last year, Grace, along with the Brewton District Missionary Department and the Concerned Citizens of Atmore, partnered together to hold the festival. The festival is an free day for families in the Atmore community to come and enjoy themselves, and to celebrate and encourage education among children and parents, Coordinator Ruth Robinson said.

Participants earn vouchers for free school uniforms and school supplies by talking with representatives from different services that are provided by the Atmore community, including the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, Women’s Resource Center, Atmore Public Library, Atmore Area YMCA, and others.

A free lunch, carnival and professional Christian entertainment will also be provided.

With the large-scale event, expenses add up, Robinson said.

Financial donations — donations of $250-plus will receive a tax statement for charitable contributions; product/service donations — to be used as door prizes; advertising; and volunteers — physically coming to July 28, are ways to donate.

To become involved, or get more information on the event, contact Robinson at Grace Fellowship at 251-368-4463.
