Brook Hills has had the great privilege of having been in a partnership with Oliver Elementary School in Gate City for over a decade, a partnership known as “Love Oliver.”

Last year, because of your amazing generosity, we were able to provide classroom supplies for every classroom, clothing needs, teacher appreciation meals and gifts, student learning and attendance incentives, t-shirts for field trips for every child, soccer field improvements, a Ready Day One Registration Party, and Trauma Care Training for all of the Oliver Elementary School staff!

Thank you, Brook Hills, for working to end the educational gap at Oliver Elementary School!


How will this year’s offering be used? 

With a goal of $40,000 this year, the Love Oliver offering will be used in a variety of ways.

First, as we have for over a decade, we will provide classroom supplies for each and every classroom at Oliver. This keeps parents from having to provide expensive supplies and teachers from having to purchase them out of their own pockets. In addition to supplies, we will provide each child a backpack, each family who attends Ready Day One a gift card to purchase a new pair of shoes (or other necessity), a new Oliver Elementary School t-shirt to be worn on field trips and at club competitions, additional trauma care training for staff, teacher and student incentives, and new picnic tables for the outside pavilion.

Any additional funds raised will go toward other school and community needs in the Love Oliver Zone.

Our hope is that every student will come to class on the first day equipped with the things they need to be successful.

We want every child and family at Oliver Elementary to have both the opportunity to receive a quality education that equips them to fulfill God’s good design for them, and to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ to complete His design for them. By helping with the first, we also get the chance to help with the second.
