Help Kids in Arlandria

As you shop for your kids to go back to school.. maybe you could pick up a few extra items to donate to neighborhood kids.

Community Lodgings has 78 at-risk Arlandria neighborhood children who come everyday to their youth programs where they help them succeed in school. They have a 'school store' for them to use their earned learning center 'dollars' to buy items they need for schoolwork.

The store will be Sept. 9th and 10th. Donations can be dropped off  any time between 10am & 6:30pm at the learning center at 607 Notabene Drive or the administrative office at 3912 Elbert Avenue. Thanks for helping!
